Camellia × williamsii ‘Yesterday’
Winner of the Threatened Plant of the Year, 2021
Tregrehan has been the family home of the Carlyons since 1565, and throughout the years there have been many keen gardeners born into the family.
From the 1960s Gillian Carlyon spent many years hybridising the camellias on the estate with American imports, and registered over 30 cultivars. This is a cross of C. saluenensis x C. japonica 'Tomorrow'. A large, bright lavender pink, medium to late season flowering double.
