» English Description

Jean Verschaffelt, 1861-1862, Price List, p.22.Lemaire, 1864, L’Illustration Horticole, vol.XI, pl.410: The illustration is a true portrait of the variety which is a perfection. It is of Italian origin. The flowers are most regularly imbricated, composed of petals, rounded, notched at the apex, of a soft pink, some­times bordered with white. A sport of ‘Elisa Centurioni’ according to R. Società Toscana di Orti­cultura Bulletin, 1862. SCCS., Camellia Nomenclature erroneously gives it as a sport of Teutonia. There is confusion in USA with this cultivar. McIlhenny, 1948, gives it as a semi-double red, variegated and Camellia Nomenclature as a rose-pink sport of Teutonia which would validly be Teutonia Pink. Abbreviation: ‘Schmitz’. Orthographic errors: ‘Giardine Schmitz’, ‘Giardino Smith’, ‘Giradino Schmitz’, ‘Giardini Schmitz’, ‘Giardina Schmitz’. ‘Giardino Schmidt’, ‘Giardina Smith’, ‘Gia­rdino Smitz’, ‘Giordino Schmitz’, ‘Giardino Schmith’. Originated by Schmitz, Florence, Italy. Chinese synonym ‘Sikemi’.
