» English Description

Vanderbilt, 1940, Camellia Research, p.3; Thomasville Nursery Catalogue, 1941, erroneously as ‘Celestina’: Rose pink, sometimes spotted white. Large, rose form double. Vigorous growth. For black and white photo see p.67, Hertrich, 1955, Camellias in the Huntington Gardens, vol.II. From the descriptions it is unlikely that it is synonymous with Celestial. Syn­onym: ‘Christmas Red’.
