» English Description

Ambroise Verschaffelt, 1850, General Catalogue. p.45. McIlhenny, 1935, List of Camellias for Sale, p.2: Red and white variegated. Very large, double blossoms. SCCS, 1947, The Camellia. Its Culture and Nomenclature: Rose red, flecked white. Medium formal double. Vigorous, bushy growth. Mid-season blooming. Not the variety listed in the old literature which was an Italian formal double red, with the centre shaded white, and is known as Bella Jeannette. There has been some confusion with this Ital­ian cultivar. In America the name ‘Cleopatra’ has erroneously been used as a synonym. It was imported from France to America.
