Berlèse, Iconographie, vol.3, 1843, pl.293: The flower is full, regular, 11 cm across, round, a light red at the circumference, and a vivid pink becoming paler at the centre. The petals are in 10-11 rows, numerous and rounded, changing form towards the centre, becoming longer and pointed; all are slightly emarginate and veined blood-red. The corolla is of a similar form to Leeana Superba, with shade of colour like Myrtifolia. It was obtained from seed by M. Tourrès, Mancheteaux, France. de Jonghe, 1851, Traité de la Culture du Camélia, p.94, as ‘Adrien le Brun’: Large peony form flower. Pink striped white. Synonyms: ‘Graulhiere’, ‘Graulthierii’, ‘Grauthieri’, ‘Graulhierii’. Orthographic errors: ‘Adrien Le Brun’, ‘Adrienne Lebrun’, ‘Adrien Brun’, ‘Adrien Labrun’, ‘Andrieux-le-Brun’. Not the same as Adrien Lebrun in USA, which is the virus variegated form and should be given the name of Adrien Lebrun Variegated.
