» English Description

Chandler & Buckingham, 1825, Camellia Britannica, with plate; Curtis, 1825, Botanical Magazine with plate; Edwards, 1825, Botanical Register with plate: Originated by Chan­dler in 1819 and first published with illustration in Edward’s Botanical Register, 1825, where it was stated to be the product of the ‘Waratah’, (Anemoniflora) The flowers are large and very regularly formed, measuring up to three and a half inches (8.5 cm) in diameter. They are a deep, almost crimson, red colour. The petals, although not numerous, are comparatively large, of a roundish form, a little divided at the extemities and incurved at the edges. The whole are marked with dark coloured veins. Sometimes the flowers vary...with the petals marked with white. Synonyms: ‘Mr Chandler’s Camellia’, ‘Chan­dler’s Red’, ‘Chandleri Elegans Rubra’, ‘Chandleri Red’, ‘Chandleri Rubra’, ‘Chandleri Crim­son’, ‘Chandleri Pulcherrima’, ‘Boleni’, ‘Pride of the Emperor’s Garden’, ‘Chandler’s Superb Striped Waratah’, ‘Chandleri Striata’, ‘Chandlerii’(Australia) Striata Chandleri’. Ortho­graphic errors: ‘Chandlerii’, ‘Chandelery’, ‘Chandlearii’, ‘Chandelarii’, ‘Chandelerii’, ‘Chan­deleri Nuova’, ‘Chandlerri’, ‘Chandlreri’, ‘Chandlery Rubra’.. Considerable confusion was caused by the use of synonyms for the companion seedling, Elegans which incorporated the words ‘Chandler’ or ‘Chandleri” and in some cases the name Chandleri has erroneously been used for Elegans. See illustration p.73, Paxtons, 1836, Magazine of Botany, vol.2. ‘Versicolor’ erroneously given as a synonym. with the ‘double striped’, (Var­iegata)
