» English Description

Vanderbilt, 1941, Camellia Research, p.2; No description; American Camellia Yearbook, 1949, p.240: A chance seedling, grown by Mrs Mary Edinger, Hood, California, USA and named in 1939 for her sister. Although the seedling is old it has only just come into commercial propagation. A light, brick red, incomplete double with folded, upright petaloids mixed with fascicles of stamens, which are predominantly central. The variety is very similar to the garden form of C.reticulata, Captain Rawes but is deeper in colour.
