» English Description

Berkmans, 1908, Country Life in America, p.548: Large, of vivid dark crimson; the centre petals raised, outer petals imbricated. A remarkable anemone-form flower. The plant is of vigorous growth and a free and early bloomer. Rubel, 1928, Azaleas and Camellias from Longview Catalogue, p.4, fig. p.5 as ‘Prof. Sargent’: One of the best of the dark varieties, a rich deep crimson. Flowers are 8 cm in diameter, globular, solid and compactly built, usually has 12 wide, slightly rumpled guard petals while inner petals are long, narrow, curled or rolled and distinctly incurved, having the appearance of an incurved chrysanthemum. Some of the inner petals are occasionally veined with pink or white, but this is seldom visible due to the compact formation of the flower which usually carries 220-230 petals. Early flowering. Fendig, 1949, American Camellia Catalogue: A tight, peony form with many petaloids; shading from rose-pink to dark red, 9-10 cm across x 5 cm deep with 12 outer petals and the centre an irregular mass of petaloids. Leaves dark green, thick, broad-elliptic, 10 cm x 5 cm, acuminate apex on a tall, vig­orous, fast growing plant. Sports: Woody Estes, Professor Charles S. Sargent Variegated. The name has collected many orthographic variants including: ‘Prof. Charles Sprague Sar­gent’, ‘Prof. Charles S. Sargent’ , ‘Prof. C.S. Sargent’, ‘Prof. Charles Sargent’, ‘Professor Charles S. Sargent’, ‘Professor Chas. S. Sargent’, ‘Professor Charles Sprague Sargent’, ‘Professor C.S. Sargent’. The origin of the variety is unknown. Professor Hume believed it may have been imported into USA by Berkman’s Nursery (later Fruitland) from Seidel Nursery, Germany, then to Magnolia Gardens where it was named by the Rev. John G. Drayton for Professor Charles Sprague Sargent, then Director of the Arnold Arboretum. See colour photo, p.112, Macoboy, 1981, The Colour Dictionary of Camellias. Chinese synonym: ‘Sajinte Jiaoshou’.
