Japanese Name



La Pace 2  Fendig, 1953, American Camellia Catalogue. Synonym for La Pace Rubra.

La Pace Rosea  Withers, 1983, ACRS, Camellia News, No.84. Synonym for La Pace Rubra.

La Pace Rouge  Nantes, Services des Espaces, Collections, 1980. Synonym for La Pace Rubra.

Red Pressii  Duncan & Davies Nursery Catalogue, 1924, p.31. Synonym for La Pace Rubra. This name was also given as a synonym for Wrightii by Nobelius, 1941. While ‘Red Pressii’ would nominally be a synonym for Pressii Rubra it appears to have been consistently and erroneously applied for the red sports of other formal double camellias such as Lavinia Maggi Rouge.
