» English Description

Berlèse, 1843, Iconographie, vol.3, pl.235 and facing page: The flower, 11 cm across, is full, regular, rounded, of an orange-crimson with touches of vivid scarlet. The petals are numerous, rounded, slightly emarginate, opening horizontally, imbricated regularly from the circumference to the centre, with occasional white markings. Sometimes the corolla is peony form. There is in commerce, a second camellia named Brownii. However this is different and originated in England while Brownii Vera originated in Belgium.
