» English Description
van Houtte Catalogue, 1842, 9:9. No description. Not to be confounded with the camellia of the name Dianthiflora. However in van Houtte’s Catalogue, 1844-1845, 18:10 he gives ‘Striata’ as a synonym and then in his 1846-1847 Catalogue 27:32 he has: ‘Striata’, synonyms ‘Variegata’, ‘Dianthiflora’, ‘Dianthiflora Striata’. Dianthiflora is rejected as a synonym as the first descriptions vary, whereas Variegata is the name of an old Chinese cultivar.
