» English Description

Verschafelt, 1860, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book II, pl.I: The blossom of the largest size, is composed of innumerable, rounded petals, even, close, serried and imbricated with the utmost regularity. Its delicate pink colouring is closely striped and banded with crimson. It was raised from seed by Count Bernadino Lechi, Brescia, Italy and named for the French horticulturalist, Comte de Gomer of Amiens. This variety was also illustrated in pl.196, The Floral Magazine, 1865. The camellia at present grown under this name shows a wide range of variation from almost self carmine (HCC.21/1) to heavily flecked with deeper colour and some white blotched. Leaves broadly elliptic, 8 cm long by 4.5-5 cm wide, serrate, shortly acuminate, mid-green. In American the names ‘Anna Frost’, ‘Madonna Pink’, and ‘Madonna’ have been erroneously equated with Comte de Gomer. Orthographic errors: ‘Compte de Comer’, ‘Comte de Comer’, ‘Compte de Gomer’, ‘Compte d’Gomer’, ‘Come de Gomer’, ‘Comte de Gomez’. Orthographic variant: ‘Conte de Gomer’.
