» English Description

Steffek, 1949, Plant Buyer’s Guide, ed.5, p.47; Stanley, 1953, American Camellia Yearbook, p.279: The name of a camellia plant of local fame was changed from ‘Hen­derson’ to Pride of Greenville. This bright red, full peony form variety was purchased by W.J. Beeland in 1897 from a nursery in Springfield, Ohio. In time the property was sold to Mr C.C. Henderson, then to Mr Ambrose Reese. As it was a desirable variety, and not identified, it was finally introduced under the name Pride of Greenville. It is thought to be a local seedling, originating in Springfield, Ohio, USA.
