» English Description

Overlook Nursery Catalogue, 1939-1940, p.39: The colour is the same as Cleopatra, bright cherry red, but the flower is large and single. The leaves are narrow and thick, dark shiny green. Imported from Japan in 1933 but found to be incorrectly named so was given the name Brilliancy by K. Sawada. See black and white photo, p.281, Hertrich, 1959, Camellias in the Huntington Gardens, vol.III.
