» English Description

van Houtte Catalogue, 1844-1845, 19:10; Ysabeau, 1844, Annales de la Société d’Horticulture de Paris, 35(201):136. No description. Verschaffelt, 1858, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VIII, pl.II: It was produced (by sporting) on the Camellia Valerio and immediately grafted to preserve it. Its blossom, at least 10 cm across, is composed of ample petals, almost even, rounded, imbricated with perfection, of a beautiful white, liberally striped with pink, delicate veined and fasciated in the same shade. Le Texnier, 1911 Catalogue lists two camellias of this name, one grown from seed by Donckelaer and the other introduced by Vershaffelt. Oudin, 1844: Same as ‘Napoleon’ of Defresne. Carmine pink, very large, full double flower. It would appear from this that ‘Comte de Flandre’ was erroneously used as a synonym for ‘Napoleon’. Orthographic variants: ‘Comte de Flanders’, ‘Comte de Flandres’, ‘Conte de Flan­dre’, ‘Conte di Fiandra’, ‘Conte de Flandra’. Orthographic error ‘Compte de Flandre’.
