Camellia japonica Adamastor

Florence-2007, once asked me "Adamastor", an old Portuguese variety that was not located. In April, as every year, members of the SEC, visit historic gardens Portuguese. A Portuguese fan (Antonio Concepso, Flavius Nursery), I have known for years told me I had a picture on your web page. He has a nursery and sold to fans Galician camellias.

Thank you so much. I will try to get cuttings from him as I have not located 'Adamastor' in the US.

RE: Camellia japonica 'Adamastor'

Daniel, I 'googled' both the name of the nursery as well as Antonio Concepsao and got no results. Do you know how I can contact the nursery?

Hi Florence-2007.
I apologize. Cocepo is not the name of Antnio. I was wrong. The correct name is: Antnio J.S. Assuno. The always scolds me fondly, when you call "Concepo".
