» English Description

Sheather & Co. Nursery Catalogue, 1872. A delicate shade of light pink. (RHS.CC.China. Rose 024/3) A perfectly imbricated formal double, hardy, vigorous and erect, with ovate, light green foliage. Originated in Australia by Sheather, Paramatta, N.S.W. See pl.IX, Waterhouse, 1952, Camellia Trail. Prince Frederick William was listed a num­ber of times in Europe from 1865 on, but this seems to be an orthographic error for Princess Frederick William. The name ‘Early Prince’ was given for a supposedly early blooming form, but the difference seems insufficient to warrant a separate name and it is reduced to syn­onymity. Orthographic errors: ‘Prince Frederick Wilhelm’, ‘Prince Frederick Williams’. Orthographic variant: ‘Prince Frederic William’. Abbre­viation: ‘Prince F. William’. Received an RHS., Award of Merit in 1953. Sport: Lady Hope.
