» English Description

Naudin, Jul.1850, Revue Horticole, p.273: "The famous yellow flowered camellia brought from China by Mr Fortune and newly arrived in France". Verschaffelt, 1853, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book X, pl.II as 'Jaune' (De Fortune) : We owe its introduction to Europe to the plant hunter Fortune, who discovered it in 1848 near Shanghai and sent it to Standish & Noble of Bagshot who put it out for sale. The form recalls that of the 'Waratah' or anemone form class. The exterior petals are large, sub-biserate, of a rather pure white; the central ones are quite numerous, very small, very compact, ruffled, distinctly yellow and resemble those of an anemone. The leaves are narrow, quite small, thick, lanceolate, oblong, acuminate, very deli­cately notched. For some time it was classified as a C.sasanqua under the name 'Anemonaeflora Sasanqua'. Other synonyms indude: 'Jaune de Fortune', 'Juane de Chine', 'Fortune's Yellow', 'Gialla', 'Gialla della China', 'Jaune de la Chine', 'Jaune' (Fortune). 'Fortune'. 'Sasanqua var. Anemoniflora Lutea', ‘Camellia à fleurs Jaune’. See black and white photo, p.57, American Camellia Yearbook, 1958 and a colour plate, front cover, SCCS, 1955, The Camellia Review, vol.16, No.8.
