Description

» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1852, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VII, pl.III: In the class of white camellias it is unsurpassed for regularity of form and purity of colouring. Its imbrication of the petals seem to be drawn by compass. Originated in Italy. Orthographic error ‘Comodore’.
