» English Description
Verschaffelt, 1851, Nouvelle Iconographie, book XII, pl.III: This pretty camellia, of Italian origin, belongs to the class of perfections, and is conspicuous for its white blooms with a pale yellow tint at the centre and a rare pink mark, and for its numerous, small, rounded or oblong petals, spread out at the circumference and upright at the centre. In America, the Portuguese variety ‘Don Pedro V’ (Dom Pedro V, Rei de Portugal) has long been known, erroneously, as ‘Elisabeth’ or ‘Elizabeth’, and both Teutonia and Montironi have also been confused with this camellia. However they are all separate and distinct cultivars. Montironi is a seedling raised by Casoretti in Italy and Teutonia is a German seedling of Gruneburg first listed by both van Houtte and Berlèse in 1843. Other synonyms listed are ‘Teutonia White’, ‘Trios Marie’ and ‘Victoria and Albert’. This latter is actually a synonym for Teutonia. Orthographic variants: ‘Elizabeth’,’Elisabetta’.
