» English Description

Vershaffelt, 1852, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book V, pl.IV: A pretty English camellia which bloomed for the first time in 1850. Its lanceolate-oblong petals slightly pointed, irregu­larly imbricated, with a delicate longitudinal groove in the centre, give it a multi starshaped aspect. Its vivid cherryrose colouring is delicately and distinctly veined in the same shade. We acquired it from England where it was obtained from seed.
