Berlèse, 1843, vol.II,p.159 (translated into English by Armando de Castro Oliveira): "The C. Juliana is a well-made shrub, of moderate vegetation and which rushes without regularity. The leaves are 9 to 10 centimeters long by 5 to 6 wide; they are oval-acuminate, with curved tips below, one horizontal, the others inclined the tip towards the earth. The upper surface is almost flat, shiny, and branched with ribs or veins that are not very apparent. The edges are surrounded by sharp teeth, the green is dark. The buds are oblong, few in number, solid, with greenish calycinal scales. The flower is 9-10 centimeters in diameter; it is white, of a very beautiful shape, double, and made to be retracted.
The petals of the circumference are on three or four rows; those in the first row are wide, oval and fan-shaped; those who follow them are oval-elongated, flat, thick, all deeply indented, several even doubly; all serrated, imbricated with little regularity and marked with some rather rare pink lines; those in the center are small, straight, elongated, laurel shaped, and composing an uneven center streaked with a beautiful purplish red."
