Frobel, 1841, Magazine of Horticulture, 7:257: Originated by F. Frobel, USA. "I have raised another new seedling camellia, which I have named after his excellency, John Tyler, our President of USA. It has foliage about the size of the old striped camellia (Variegata) but the leaves are flat like those of Conchiflora, the pericarp is green and the flower is of the purest, deep pink. It has 26 large, heart shaped petals and 15 small ones with a few anthers. It is 9-10 cm across."
