» English Description

Burdin Maggiore & co., 1849-1850, Catalogue General: Beautiful red lined with white. Petals ruffled elegantly and curled. de Jonghe, 1851, Traité de la Culture du Camellia, p.99: Irregular flowers, red, bordered with white. Petals ruffled and indented. Luzzatti, 1851, Collezione di Camelie, p.9: Red lined and bordered with white; perfectly imbricated. According to Franchetti, 1855, ‘Sacco di Lainate’ is a synonym. However this is an orthographic variant for ‘Sacco Lainatensis’. (Burnier & Grilli, 1846-1847), which would give this name priority. A check of the original descriptions indicates that they are independent varieties. Originated in Italy by Burdin. Orthographic variants: ‘Charles Albert’, ‘Karl Albert,. Orthographic error: ‘Charlo Alberto’.
