P (incisa × campanulata) 'Okame'

Flowers carmine-pink; calyx and flower-stalks reddish. March. This beautiful hybrid was raised by Collingwood Ingram, P. campanulata being the pollen-parent. Despite the tenderness of this species, ‘Okame’ is completely hardy and makes a bush or small tree of neat habit. Propagated by cuttings. Award of Garden Merit 1952.Later, Capt. Ingram made the cross (P. incisa × P. campanulata) × P. sargentii. One of the resulting seedlings, named ‘Shosar’, has flowers similar to those of P. sargentii but produced some weeks earlier. It makes a narrow-crowned tree and colours well in the autumn.
