This special lady is the parent of many cold-hardy cultivars, including most of our C. japonica April series! Originated at Rancho del Descanso in Sierra Madre, CA, circa 1947. Named after the wife of the Los Angeles Daily News publisher, Manchester Boddy.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring. We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture."
