» English Description

Itō, Ihei, 1695, Kadan Chikinshō, #144: Red spotted with white. Large size single to irregular, peony form double. Mid-season flowering. Leaves large, blunt apex, oval, wavy with wide, shallow serrations. Itō, Ko’emon, 1879, Chinkashū: Red, with white spots, large size. Resembles Ranbyōshi. See: Tuyama, 1966, Camellia Cultivars of Japan, pl.155 & p.270; Encyclopedia of Camellias in Colour, vol.I, 1972, pl.269, p.124 & p.331. These mod­ern bibliographies describe this as a double flower, but it is thought to be the same as the old Itō cultivar, because peony forms appear both as double and single flowers. Different readings: ‘Ohmidare’, ‘Oomidare’, ‘Dairan’, ‘Tairan’. Originated in Japan. Possible synonym for Ran­byōshi. See Seibundō Shinkōsha, 1979, Senchinshū, p.161 & p.256.
