» English Description

SCCS, 1962, Camellia Nomenclature, p.18: Deep rose pink. Large, semi-double to peony form with irregular, upright, centre petals. Mid-season blooming. Originally imported from France by McIlhenny in 1937, it was erroneously named ‘Baronne Leguay’ so the affix (United States), was added to distinguish it from the valid form. Krussmann, Gerd, 1976, Manual of Cultivated Broad-leaved Trees and Shrubs, p.267, as ‘Baronne Leguay’: Flowers dark pink, large flowering semi-peony form with irregular, erect petals in the centre. It seems that the author copied the American description as the correct form is still common in Europe.
