» English Description
Hertrich, 1955, Camellias in the Huntington Gardens, vol.II, p.32, black and white photo, p.35: This is ‘Baronne de Bleichroeder’, (Otome-shibori) in all essential respects. Differences are in size and colour of the flower, which is slightly larger in all dimensions and the colour is nearly pure white with only the briefest flecking of Spinel Pink, 0625. It is a formal type of incomplete double, retaining its formal aspect longer in the late stages of unfolding than the other sports of Otome-shibori. Originated at Huntington Gardens, San Marino, California, USA.
