See image. It is believed that this cultivar is closely related to the eighteen scholars.

Are you referring to The Eighteen Scholars of the T'ang Dynasty?

Luis, *18 scholars* is a camellia. Lol!

I checked the reference that '18 Scholars' camellias might be associated with a famous town, Jingdezhen of Jiangxi Province. The best Chinese Porcelain has been produced there for thousands of year. I counted about 150 "East China Tea Flower" on the book, 50 of them are formal double. It is a rather high ratio in this regard.

At inner territory Chongqing City is big on camellia planting. Nanshan Botanical Garden and zoo areas have lots of camellias growing on the hills. I saw many were formal double flowers.( they also has an area of Bon-zhai, or Basin Planting, translated into Japanese as Bonsai). When you see the lush greens naturally without irrigation, you know the habitat environment ideal for camellias, etc. A picture of Guest House at the Botanical Garden.

I made a run in my garden. I have at least three formal double flowers from China. White 18 Scholars with streaks, Colorful Angel in Red and Mandarin Bird's Crown.( all of my own translation, not official names)

MB Crown picture was taken about two years ago. My White 18 Scholars is about to open.

Are there Chinese cowboy?

RE: Camellia - Crimson six-edged (multi-storied pagoda)

A Genuine cowboy trained at Panhandle area of Oklahoma during part of my college days. Then worked as a milk product specialist going often to most U S and Canada, including DC & Va area. This is a garden plant website. It might be forbidden to talk other issue.

Now You can see that cowboy and camellia are closely related. One is for job and other, hobby. I also have a new camellia in red and white.

Are you a descendent of Europeans or Asians?

RE: Camellia - Crimson six-edged (multi-storied pagoda)

100% Chinese. That is why all my new camellias are named with a Chinese culture identity. That will be unique naming. Because there are over thousands of named camellias. I do not want to use a common name which will be mixed up with so many other names. Likewise I tell my Chinese camellia friends that some of Chinese camellia names are too confusing, such as, Red Pearl, Red Jewel, Precious Pearl, Pink butterfly wings, Silvery Pink etc.
