Satō, 1975, Chūbu no Tsubaki, p.76: Rose form to formal dou­ble, red with white spots, medium size. Leaves round-ovate, small, olive to mid-green, matt, margins sharply serrulate. Growth slow and lacks vigour. Originated in Chūbu District, Japan. This cultivar is synonymous with Saifu, which is its local name in the Chūbu district. There is also a plain red form. The petals layers are similar, but slightly finer than Otome. There are trees 250 years old on the Mino Road, Lower Gifu Prefecture, Japan. The plain red form is called Nanbanboshi.
