Sports and seedlings

New features sometimes develop on plants without human intervention or cross-pollination by insects. This feature is called sport. Part of the plant shows caracteristics different from the original : it can be the color, completely different from the original (a red becomes white) or the habit. The origin can be natural but also virale. If this new part is grown, a new camellia can be created.

Their are some "lineages" of sports. In the nomenclature, we have added links from camellias to their ancestor.

This behaviour is unpredictable. It is known that some camellias are very unstable.

Seedlings can also be done with seeds collected on a camellia. The result is also unpredictable. You can obtain a new camellia, from this seed. 

Below, the sports and the seedlings of the camellias in the nomenclature.

Camellias having sports are linked together by dark pink lines :

Camellias coming from seedling are linked together by green lines :
