Japanese Name



Avery Island  SCCS, 1954, The Camellia. Its Culture and Nomenclature, p.27 as a suggested name for the rose red sport of Vittorio Emmanuele II, but in the following issue of 1956 and on, it has been listed as a synonym for Mathotiana Supreme Variegated.

Fuse Chaoji Masetiana  Gao, Jiyin, Ltr 30 July 1990. Chinese synonym for Mathotiana Supreme Variegated.

Kate Smith Variegated  Cannon, 1962, ACS., The Camellia Journal, vol.17, No.1, back cover as ‘Kate Smith Var.’ A synonym for Mathotiana Supreme Variegated.

Kate Smith  Sharp, 1957, Camellias Illustrated, p.49, colour pl. This plate is self coloured and shows Mathotiana Supreme, not ‘Kate Smith’ which is variegated. See colour photo facing p.82, American Camellia Yearbook, 1966 which shows a beautifully moired form. However such virus variegation is not stable enough to warrant a separate cultivar name and is thus considered a synonym for Mathotiana Supreme Variegated.

Mima Mac Variegated  Tammia Nursery Catalogue, 1965-1966 as ‘Mima Mac Var’. Orthographic error for ‘Mima Mae Variegated’, Synonym for Mathotiana Supreme Variegated.
