» English Description

Auguste van Geert, 1848, Catalogue, p.15, as ‘Carlotte Grizi’. No description. de Jonghe, 1851, Culture du Camellia, p.99: Imbricated; light red, striped white at the centre of the petals. Verschaffelt, 1852, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book XI, pl.III: A per­fect imbrication of geometric regularity, a vivid, dark red colouring with a few white stains. Average in size, composed of a mass of rounded, convex petals, slightly bilobate at the apex. Obtained from seed in Italy and grown commercially for some time. In America this cultivar has been erroneously confused with Pie IX as ‘Pope Pius IX’, Prince Eugene Napoleon and Rubra Plena. It has no relationship with any of them. Orthographic errors: ‘Carlotta Crisi’, ‘Carlotti Grisi’, ‘Carlotta Grissi’, ‘Carlotta Grissie’, ‘Charlotta Grissi’, ‘Carlota Grisi’, ‘Carlotte Grizi’, ‘Carlotta Grizi’. Carlotta Grisi was a famous Italian ballet dancer.
