de Jonghe, 1851, Traité de la Culture du Camellia, p.114: (Nutini). Very double, imbricated flower in the manner of Miniata; like ‘Cecile de Valtange’ (Cécile Voltange) the circumfer­ence of the petals is a beautiful rose, the centre of the flower a light rose. Luzzatti, 1851, Collezione di Camelie, p.26: Like the camellia Miniata of Low, the outer petals are a splendid rose and the centre petals a clear pale colour. Perfectly imbricated. For colour illustration see pl.IV, Book IX, Verschaffelt, 1855, Nouvelle Iconographie, which gives the colour as cherry-red at the circumference and a delicate pink at the centre. A tiered formal double; originated in Flo­rence, Italy, by Bouturlin.
