Description

» English Description

Franchetti, 1855, Collezione di Camelie, p.21: Imbricated, soft pink, paler in the centre. Numerous petals. Verschaffelt, 1859, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VII, pl.III as ‘Conte di Soranzo’: We are indebted for this camellia to Sylvestre Grilli & Co., who sent it in 1856. Its blossoms, of good medium size, have the petals of the circumference and intermediate rows, regularly imbricated with an anemone centre of a ruffled group of petals. The general colour­ing is pink, becoming almost white towards the middle while the centre resumes the former shade. Originated by Bouturlin, Florence, Italy. Orthographic variant: ‘Conte di Soranzo’, ‘Comte de Soranzo’. Orthographic error: ‘Conte di Sorazo’, ‘Conte Soranza’.
