» English Description

Pyron, 1968, American Camellia Yearbook, p.123: “Several years ago, Mrs James Moon, Lake Charles, Louisiana, USA, named a seedling ‘Papillon’. She gave a scion to Neil Rogers of Belle Fontaine Nursery. Neil, in turn, gave the late Les Richards a scion. Evidently this sported the variety which Mrs Richards tentatively designated as Christy. This is a large, loose peony form with petals of decreasing size towards the centre. The colour is unusual basically white to blush with cloudy pink patches near the margins.”
