» English Description

Padova, 1855, Catalogi Plantarum Caesarei Regii Horti. No description. Mertens & Fontaine, Collection de cent especes.....camellia, 1845, say “There is also a second plant with this name, obtained in Florence, Italy, at the same time as the USA plant. The Italian plant is perhaps a little pinker than the other, both have the same form”. It is possible that this Italian plant and ‘Prattii (Nova)’ are Prattii Major. (Believed extinct)
