» English Description

Prof. Attilio Tassi, 1851, I Giardini giornal d’orticultura. Verschaffelt, 1856, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VII, pl.I: If one considers the flawless imbrication of its blos­soms, this variety is one of the most beautiful of the class called Perfections. Added to this is a vivid, uniform carmine cherry colouring and luxuriant growth. It was obtained from seed by Santarelli in Florence, Italy. Franchetti, 1855, Collezione di Camelie, p.13: Very large, perfectly imbricated, brick red veined violet, with all the petals lightly edged a constant pallid white colouring. In the 1866-1867 Catalogue, 116:16, van Houtte describes this as: Very large, thick­ness of petals, tiered imbrication; the outer petals pale cerise, the others, at the extreme centre, lavender pink.
