朱國棟、蔡燦玉,2011. 《台灣茶花族譜》,p.22.

Bachong Mei (八重梅)(Eight Layered Plum)(C. sasanqua)茶梅。1965,台湾茶花品种之研究 (A Study of the Camellia Varieties of Taiwan)。原产地:台湾。半重瓣、粉红色、小中轮(68 x 2.5cm)、花瓣约2022枚、花期111月、树形矮小丛生。八重梅'可以说是早期台湾阳明山地区'半重瓣形'粉红色系茶梅的统称。由于'八重梅''狮子头'相当的类似接近而无法分辨,茶花专家曾经两次从日本引种作比对,判定两者是相同的品种,其差异性是环境因子与培育方式所造成,因此将'八重梅改列为(C. hiemalis)寒椿(冬茶梅),Shishigashira (狮子头)的别名。
