Experience with Dot Spengler?

lily_g(7b Ga)December 2, 2004

Saw a beautiful Dot Spengler and am contemplating adopting her. Can anyone tell me about her growth habit, expected size, heaviness of bloom, general plusses and minuses? Thanks!

The variety is listed as 'Dorothy Spengler' in the Camellia Nomenclature book as a japonica of average growth with large formal-double white blooms, blooming late in the season (probably March). Introduced by Mrs. J. J. (Dot?) Spengler of Durham, North Carolina in 1968. I will look for more information on this one. Sounds nice, and surely worth having.
