Description

» English Description

Coghurst Nursery, 1994, Camellias, p.11 as ‘Faustine Lechii’: Early to mid-season flowering. Single pink with white stripe. Free flowering. Good growth. The stock was cultivated from Miss Carlyon at Parr, Cornwall, who described it as “Single, striped pink white”. It was one of the camellias sent to the RHS in 1939 for identification, after comparison with coloured plates. If it is a single as described it cannot be the original ‘Faustine Lechi’, a synonym for Faustina, which was a formal double. It has therefore been identified as Faustine Lechi (UK).
