» English Description

van Houtte Catalogue, 1842, 956: Admirably imbricated; 70 petals. The four first rows of petals are a velvety dark crimson, the others are accented by white bands. Originated by Boffi, Desio, Italy. Named for Maria Anne Elisa Bonaparte, sister of Napoleon I and wife of Felix Baciocchi. She became Princess of Piombino and Lucca. Félix Baciocchi’s surname is variously spelled in different references. However, the evidence from Italian authorities, which includes Félix’s baptismal certificate (as well as his many signatures), clearly established ‘Baciocchi’ as the correct orthography. It is also the spelling used in the prior valid listing of the camellia name. Besides suffering considerably in its orthography, it was confused in America, with three other cultivars, viz: Margherita Coleoni Variegated, Chiyoda-nishiki and another unidentified cultivar which retains the name Princess Baciocchi, as against Princesse Baciocchi for the valid clone. Its many orthographic errors and variants include: ‘Princess Bacchocci’, ‘Princess Bacchiochi’, ‘Princess Bacchicoci’, ‘Princess Baccinochi’,’Princess Bacciocchi’,‘Princess Baccniochi’,‘Princess Bachiocchi’,‘Princess Baciochi’, ‘Princess Baciocchi’, ‘Princess Cochiochi’, ‘Princess Bacciocchi’,‘Princesse Baciotecchi’. ‘Princesse Bacchiocci’, ‘Princess Bochinachi’, ‘Princesse Baciochi’,‘Princesse Bacchiochi’,‘Princesse Bacchionocci’, ‘Princesse Bacchiotsii’, ‘Princesse Bacciocchi’,‘Princesse Bacciochi’,‘Princessa Baciocchi’,‘Principesca Bachioki’, ‘Principessa Baciocchi’,’Principessa Bachiocchi’, ‘Principessa Bacchiochi’, ‘Principessa Bacciacchi’, ‘Principessa Bacciocchi’
