» English Description

Isola Madre Catalogue, 1845. No description. Van Houtte Catalogue, 1846-1847, 27:24 as a seedling of B. Lechi, Italy. Verschaffelt, 1851, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book III, pl.11: Two blossoms, distinctly full, emerging one from the other and forming an open, full-­bodied floral effect, of a bright poppy-cherry colour, sometimes striated with white. de Jonghe, 1851, Traité de la Culture du Camellia, p.106: Peony form, red with white blotches. In the USA it has been confused with a local variety so that the exact identity is doubtful. A considerable number of synonyms are attached to the name Enrico Bettoni but mostly seem to apply to the erroneous form listed in SCCS, Camellia Nomenclature.
