Description

» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1852, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book IX, pl.IV: Of Italian origin and grown commercially since 1850 - comparatively small size of bloom. The petals are rounded, faintly emarginated, quite imbricated, of a vivid carmine rose colour with a more or less clear white margin. At the centre they are small and form a small, compact heart. The name has since been used botanically for Camellia gracilis Hemsley (1895) now considered synonymous with Camellia caudata Wallich, 1829.
