» English Description
McIlhenny, 1934, List of Camellias for Sale as ‘Rose Emry’; Rubel, 1936, Wholesale Price List, No.74, p.4: The colour of the flowers varies from deep crimson to rosepink. A medium sized, anemone form. Originated in USA. Synonyms: ‘Orient’, ‘Carnation’, ‘Carnation Red’, ‘Orientalis’, ‘Christmas Glory’, ‘Rose Emery’. Pseudonyms: ‘Fireball’, ‘Ignescens’. Orthographic errors: ‘Rose Emry’, ‘Rose Emory’, ‘Rose Enemy’. Note: Rubels conjecture that the various forms of ‘Rose Emery’ stemmed from a misspelling of the name Rose Anemone is accepted as the most likely explanation. In USA ‘Rose Emery’ is given as a valid name and referred to Berlèse, 1837, Monographie. However the only connection with Berlèse camellia is through the pseudonym, Ignescens which is a valid name for a different cultivar, being a flat semi-double. Therefore this is rejected.
