» English Description

Buist, 1839, Camellias, p.8; Berlèse, 1840, Monographie, ed.2, p.125: This Camellia has oval-lanceolate leaves with acuminate apices, 13 cm x 6 cm, deep green, thick, deeply, regularly serrated. The flowers, 10 cm across, are full ranunculata form, of a salmon rose tinged bright pink, with long, numerous, lightly veined petals, regularly imbricated, concave on opening, becoming flat and reflexed. See colour plates Berlèse, 1841, Iconographie, pl.98; Ver­schaffelt, 1848, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VIII, pl.IV. The camellia was obtained from seed by Mr Favre, Nantes, France, who gave it his own name. In 1839, Mr Cachet, horticulturalist at Angers, purchased the entire stock. It bloomed for the first time in 1840 according to Verschaf­felt, however Berlèse described the flower in 1840 and it probably first flowered in 1839 when Cachet purchased the variety.
