» English Description

Berlèse, 1843, Iconographie, vol.3, pl.165: The flower, about 10 cm in diameter, is full, regular, pure, milk white, transparent. The petals are in 8 or 9 rows; the first 3 rows are large, rounded, indented; the other rows long and narrow; those at the centre, thin, strap-like and disposed in the form of a star. The flower is flat and imbricated with more or less regularity. The camellia was received from Italy and first flowered for Vershaffelt in 1843, when he supplied a plant to Berlèse. Verschaffelt figured and described this variety in 1849, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VII pl.II under the synonym ‘Frédéric Alba’. It subsequently received many variations of these names such as: Fréderick le Grand flore albo pleno’, ‘Grand Frederic Alba’, ‘Fredrico Alba’, ‘Fredrica Alba’, ‘Fredrici Alba’, ‘Floyii Alba’, ‘Frederico il Grande (Flore albo pleno)’, ‘Frederico Alba Vera’, ‘Fréféric-le-Grand Alba’, ‘Frederich Alba’.
