» English Description
Verschaffelt, 1854, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book XI, pl.II: Three or four years ago this Camellia was received from Italy. It deserves to be cultivated on account of its blossoms of medium size, of a vivid pink, occupying a middle place between imbricates and peony form. The large petals are somewhat irregular, some oval or rounded, others oblong, all emarginate or sub-mucronate. The effect is a full-bodied bloom set off by the oval, lanceolate bright green foliage. Orthographic variant: ‘Baronne Caza’, ‘Baroness Casa’.
