» English Description

Buist Nursery Catalogue, 1968, p.9 as “pink”. Fendig, 1950, American Camellia Catalogue describes it as a “rose form, complete double, imbricated, medium size, 8 cm in diam­eter by 5 cm deep. Rose pink with a purple cast. Petals fold downwards. Flowers extremely variable in form. Leaves, thick, waxy, olive green, oval, 7.5 cm x 3.7 cm. Hardy, compact, vigor­ous shrub.” Fendig thinks that it is possibly identical with Celestine.
