» English Description

Burnier Catalogue, 1855-1856: Ivory white, lined and splashed with carmine, imbricated. Verschaffelt, 1859, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VII, pl.II: Its blossoms are very large, of numerous rounded petals, nearly full, imbricated with regularity; pure white with a yellowish tinge at the centre and rare, delicate pink stripes. Del Lungo e Girardi, 1928, Le Camelie, p.127: Vivid coral red flower, rarely striped with white. Probably a red sport of the original cultivar has usurped the name. Originated by Madoni, Brescia, Italy. Orthographic errors: ‘Carolina Francina’, ‘Carolina Francini’, ‘Carolina Franzoni’. The color of this cultivar might wrongly describe as white, but should be red, need futher information to confirm. Those in white might be 'Paolina Maggi'.
