» English Description

Auguste van Geert, 1852, Catalogue, p.33: Soft pink from J.B. Smith, Philadelphia, USA. Buist, 1854, American Flower Garden Directory, ed.6, p.217: Originated by Mackenzie. Pure white with distinct pink stripes, petals round, nearly fully imbricated, under medium size. Foliage, long-ovate, glossy green, free growth. Verschaffelt, 1855, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book XII, pl.II: It is not surprising that E.J. Henderson & Son purchased this Camellia at the price of 200 pounds from Mr Macken­zie, Philadelphia, USA. No other variety is more perfectly imbricated or has better arranged petals comparatively to the ultra-medium size of the blossoms of purest white on which appear a few delicate, bright red stripes.
