As the editor of the Camellia Nomenclature published by the Southern California Camellia Society ( SCCS), I am very interested in including camellias being introduced and propagated that so far have not been registered through the American Camellia Society SCCS. Specifically I have seen c. sasanqua 'Eskimo Dawn', Long Island Pink' and 'Long Island White' offered by several nurseries. All are cold hardy and unknown to many of us in California. Are you or the originators interested in being in the camellia Nomenclature and also in the International Camellia Registry.
In addition as editor of the American Camellia Society Journal ( a quarterly publication) I would very much like to have an article on cold hardy camellias illustrated with photos. Are you or any one else interested ?
Thank You
Bradford King

Hi Brad, welcome to ATP.
I am the camellia database moderator, not because I know a lot about them but because I volunteered early on to manage any proposals of new entries and images as they came in. Dave has not tackled any importing of an online camellia database to add to our ATP database here yet, does a registered camellia one even exist with the American Camellia Society?
I know ATP would really love to have your input to help expand the database, which is growing at an incredible rate since its creation! In fact, we are planning special 'Plant Weeks' for the coming year, perhaps camellias would be a excellent one to showcase! Thumbs up

That's another plant week I'll look forward to. After seeing some z6 hardy Camellias at Logee's Greenhouse I've been eager to give one or two a try Brad. It looks like the breeders have been busy.

So will I. I've loved camellias from a distance for years, but have always been afraid my 7a climate would not agree with them. Great to have you with us at ATP, Brad.

Welcome! Brad. Saw some astounding camellias at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew a few years ago. Fell in love, but theirs were HUGE, my yard is very small, and we have frequent droughts. Big Grin Be interested in more information if we can get it added to the DB.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Hi
Both the Southern California Camellia Society and American Camellia society have active web sites. The SCCS is in the process of upgrading the site The ACS has loads of information including an encyclopedia of camellias by name with photos. Some is restricted to ACS members but not all.
Registering a o new camellia cultivar is free with SCCS and a nominal fee with ACS. Forms on the ACS web site. Registration form from me for the SCCS Camellia Nomenclature. FYI the 2014 edition just was published with over 4,00 cultivars. The three book 30,000 International Camellia Registry is more complete but not is generally needed for camellia growers.
I will be speaking to the Northern California November 18 in Redwood City and Tuesday some where in Modesto TBA.

Sharon, I grew camellias in MD so you should be able to grow them in Kentucky.
