» English Description

Lemaire, ed., 1872, L’I1lustration Horticole, vol.19, p.241, pl.103 as ‘Mme Cachet’: A good shaped bush with average sized leaves, acute apex, serrate, thick, flat and strong, and of a good colour. The flowers are large with the petals regularly imbricated, orbicular with a notched apex. The colour is white with a transparent flesh tint, some petals touched with fine stripes of deep pink. This variety was originated from seed by M. A. Cachet of Angers, France. Abbreviations: ‘Mad. Cachet’, ‘Mme Cachet’. Orthographic errors: ‘Mme Cochet’, ‘Mad. Cochet’, ‘ Cachet’, ‘Souv. Madame Cochet’. Orthographic variant: ‘Madam Cachet’, ‘Madame Cacket’. Sport: Madame P. de Pannemaeker. The cultivar described in SCCS., Camellia Nomenclature and The Camellia. Its Culture and Nomenclature from 1947 and on, is not the valid variety, as it is a semi-double, not a formal double as shown in all early illustrations. This would seem to have originated with McIlhenny’s release of an erroneous variety as listed in 600 Varieties of Camellias, 1937.
