» English Description

Jacob Makoy et Cie Catalogue, 1829, p.6. No description. Courtois, 1833, Mag­azin d’Horticulture, 1[pt.D]:315. No description. Berlèse, 1837, Monographie, ed.1, p.113, 131: There are, under this name, two different camellias; the first has leaves 7 cm wide x 10 cm long; with the form, colour and dimensions of ‘Imperialis’, when this is very vigorous; buds large, obtuse with greenish scales; flower of white ground, striped with rose as in the camellia above named, from which it differs but very little; only the heart is slightly yellowish. The second has leaves very nearly like those of ‘Grandiflora Simplex’; its flower is double, cherry-red and very regular. It is believed that this is the camellia Elphingstoniana.
