» English Description
Michael Floy, New York, Catalogue, 1823, p.28. No description. Sweet, 1826, Hortus Britannicus, Pt.I., p.62 as “thick nerved”. Loddige’s Botanical Cabinet, vol.XV, 1828, folio 1475: This variety was introduced a few years since from China, we believe, by Captain Rawes. We just noticed it in Mr Kent’s collection, from whom we obtained it. At first sight the flowers much resemble the Anemoniflora but the colour is paler and the form more cupped. The leaves are also different, being much wrinkled, while of the other kind they are peculiarly flat and smooth. It blooms at the same season as the other kinds, the flowers remaining for a long time and not dropping off while fresh as is usual with Anemoniflora. Originated in China. Synonyms: ‘Kent’s Camellia’, ‘Kent’s Hexangularis’, ‘Kentii Crassinervis de Lodd.’, ‘Crassinervis Serni’.
