» English Description

SCCS., 1958, Camellia Nomenclature, p.23: White striped pink and rose. Large semi-double. Slow, upright growth. Blooms mid-season to late. Sport: Quaker Lady. Carter, writing in the American Camellia Yearbook of 1953, p.73 says: “In addition I have several good seedlings of Aspasia Macarthur...One plant in particular produces a rather flat bloom with broad, curling centre petals and few stamens. The large blush-white flowers have scat­tered, wide, gay stripes of pink. I had intended to call this variety ‘Carnival’ but some other variety has prior claim”.
