» English Description

Yokohama Catalogue, 1891, p.9: Red and white, large single; Yokoyama Nursery Catalogue, 1895, p.13: Large, spotted. 7.5 cm across. Different readings: ‘Fukutsutsumi’, ‘Hukuzutsumi’, ‘Fukudzutsumi’. Western corruptions: ‘Fukusut­sune’, ‘Fukuzutsuki’, ‘Fukizutsumi’, ‘Fukuzuksumi’. Synonyms: ‘Chandler’s Special’, ‘Flamingo’, ‘Zerbe’, ‘Zerbia", ‘Hodgins Special Pink’, ‘No Mene’ and, erroneously ‘Apple Blos­som’. The clone distributed in Australia and the USA was originally imported from the Yoko­hama Nursery Co. by Basil Hodgins, a Victorian nurseryman, and from there was sent to W. Wylams, California. See p.XI, Hertrich’s Camellias in the Huntington Gardens vol.III, 1959. There remains a doubt that it is identical to the present Japanese cultivar of the same name.
