White Doves / Mine-no-yuki
I'd like to plant a hedge of sasanquas in my front yard, west facing, full sun. I have some way overgrown ligustrum there (about 12 feet tall) and I'd love to get rid of them (not a fan at all). I ran across a beautiful picture of Mine-no-yuki (snow on the mountain, snow on the ridge) camellias in the form of a long hedge and they were absolutely striking with a blanket of snow whte petals on the ground under the plants. So, I've been trying to learn more about this variety. I have heard that they go by both names (White Doves and Mine-no-yuki). Tonight, I saw on the Monrovia website that White Doves is credited with originating at Nuccio's nurseries.
So, this brings me to my question. Mine-no-yuki is an old Japanese variety. Is it really the same as White Doves (and why does Monrovia credit Nuccio for it http://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/plants/669/white-doves-camellia.php#.UG_T17RYXzI )? If not, what's the difference between the two? Do they grow at the same rate?
