Seibundō Shinkōsha, 1979, Senchinshū, p.60, colour plate; Ency­clopedia of Camellias in Colour, vol.II, 1978, p.177, pl.411: A large semi-double to open, peony form of about 16 petals, pale pink with fine red stripes and marks; the outer, large, rounded and reflexed; the inner often twisted and lacinated. A large centre stamen cluster with pale yellow anthers and filaments. Fragrant. Leaves broad-elliptic, flat with slightly recurved, acuminate apex; medium to fine serrations. Originated in Kurume, Fuku’oka Prefecture, Japan. Satomi gave this as a synonym for Ezo-nishiki but they are quite different in all respects. The syn­onym ‘Nishiki-mino’ is also rejected. It is invalidly known as ‘Aki-no-homare’ and ‘Goshok­agami’ in Kansai. Different reading: ‘Gondoh-shibori’. Corruption of Japanese name: ‘Dondo-shibori’. Named by Tadashi Hisatomi in 1930.
