Hybrid Camellias are those having two or more species (usually Japonica mixed with other species) in their parentage. Both flower and growth habit will vary greatly depending upon species involved.
To help identify the various parentages the following code is used:
R—Reticulata Hybrid. These usually produce large to very large blossoms on vigorous, open growing plants.
S—Saluenensis Hybrid. Although these vary greatly in growth habit, ranging from very compact to open and leggy, Saluenensis hybrids characteristically are small-leafed, Sasanqua-like plants that produce small to medium flowers, are very profuse, and tend to set buds even when young. Many are reputed to be cold hardy.
SP—These are actually Pitardii hybrids, but their overall appearance and performance are that of Saluenensis hybrids.
