Synonyms: ‘Principessa Clotilda’, ‘Principessa Clothilde’, ‘Princess Clotilde’, ‘Princess Clothilde’, ‘Princesse Clothilde’, ‘Principessa de Clothilde’, ‘Principessa Clotilde’, Principess Clothilda’. Note; Hillebrand and Bertolazzi, Antiche Camelie del Lago Maggiore, 2003, p.311 states that the cultivar they recognise as ‘Principessa Clotilde’ was raised by Rovelli about 1850. All descriptions are fairly similar, and it is not possible to say with certainty if there were one or two cultivars.
