PROGRESS REPORT.ON CAMELLIA VARIETY CLASSIFICATION
R. J. Wilmot, Assistant Horticulturist
To our Cooperatorst
In November.of 1939 the first .camellia plants were obtained
for starting a project to try to straighten out some of the confusion in
their varietal nomenclature. Plants are still coming in as new sources are
contacted and the collection.now numbers more than 1,000 specimens from 36
sources scattered from Oregon to Massachusetts. Those of: the same name or
description have been planted side by side in beds. As hiey have flowered,
photographs in black and white or natural color and technical descriptions
have been made.
The season 1942-43 is the first.during which it has been
possible to make comparisons between certain varieties because many plants
sent in are just coming into bloom, .Therefore, we have prepared this initial
report on the few varieties that have flowered and a list of varieties in
.t4 tec6llection with spellings of. names corrected to the best form. q hi
list has been compiled from a varietal bibliography of 1500 or more names
with from one to several references to literature under each name and a
second list of varietal names from nursery catalogs, nearly a hundred of
which appeared between 1828 and 1900...
Rules Governig Nomenclature
As a basis for work of this kind, it is necessary lay
down cert ain logical rules of nomenclature and base conclusions trkr ori.
Thy arre as follows; ,-
1. A name should apply to only. one variety, If. by dchde
the. same name is used for two different varieties, the older one has priority.
2. Only one name should be given.to a variety,
3. A name once applied -to a variety, should not be used
again, even though the one to which it was. first applied apparently ehave
S 4. Names in whatever languagae'they were first used should
not be changed, modified or used in translated form.
5, When new varieties are named and introdU(Ced, adequate
descriptions should be published in dated catalogs or recognized horticul-
6, Names should be short; two words at most are sufficient.
7. Latin or Latinized names should not be used for horticul-
Such names are reserved for botanical species,
8. To indicate the originator or introducer of a variety,
to make his name a part of the variety name, it should be placed
after the name, thus: Tricolor (Siebold); Elegans (Chandler).
9. It is inadvisable. to (se a name thi t closely resembles
and pronuioiation any name 'in use or that has been in use,
10. Varieties should not be named and introduced unless
they ,are different from or superior .to varieties already in propagation.
,t may be pointed out that's fixed sport of any variety
propagated by a grower may be named as a new variety. It should be propaga-
ted for sQme time before intrpd ping, it to make sure that it is fixed, will
not'revert to the original abd 'as ~t beei'preiot slisna~ ed.
Tak.ig these ries iato onrisideration,'the list of varieties
has bepi~ shortened and those which were variations in. spelling or synonymous'
are carried' uder the. name which has. priority. This, of course, is the first
name under which the variety'appeaee d.
CQlmaMssiaon it Varietieis
Many well budded- p)abt-did not flower because of weather
or other contributing factors and. all open flowers were frozen during a low
of 195 F.', February 15, 1943. Five day`slater, twenty varieties,. showing
no damage, were open. Some varieties submitted were found to be something
entirely different from the catalog descriptions. This cannot be too strongly
em warized because too frequently confusion has arisen because one nursery-
manxi Wi' inglQf gold another a lot of fting-out stock that had been mis-
labled' as cuttings. If the buyer were not familiar with the variety he thhe
sold it under the wrong name..
In addition to actual mislabeling in the nursery, many plants,
tl~e.pnc~s .of, which have been lost, have been given local hames in different
parts of the country. This is further complicated by the fact that they may
have been exported from Japan to Europe and the United States and' renamed
several times, Herme is. atypical example,of this, Faulty proof-reading of
catalogs has allowed errors ip:spelling to creep in, One foreign nursery
catalogue listing 277 varieties had 49 variations in spelling betW~en it and
a previous issue Foreign names are frequently misspelled in the nurseries
due to 'ignorance f the language, ,
Varieties bearing names about which there is controversy
are passed without comment because they have not. flowered yet or have pro-
duced insufficient bloom from which to draw conclusions.
In several cases it has been found that varieties carrying
old names do not resemble in the least the descriptions found under those
names in the literature. Where this is the case every nurseryman should check
through his records to find if possible where the misnaming occurred and en-
deavor to locate the true name.
Questions concerning the spelling of names will be cheerfully
answered, and complete authority furnished..
Taking the plants as they appear alphabetically in the list, the first
to be discussed is the Amabilis group. These no doubt should be under Japanese
names. because they do not have the slightest resemblance to Amabilis or Amabile
as first described in print. In the American Flower Garden Directory for 1839,
p. 239, Buist describes Amabile as bright rose shading to pink then to light
red. Bbrlese in the 3rd Ed. of his Monographie (1845) changed the spelling'to
Amabilis and described it as white, single; rose form, 8 petals with a few
stamens in the center. Amabilis Plena or Americana is practically'the same as
Buist described it above, If he had been describing the variety under considera-
tion, he. would have noted the beautiful stamen formation characteristic of the
variety now passing under the name Amabilis. In.the Dulau prints the picture
of Shiratama approaches this variety. "This group"sould be carried under the
name Amabilis for further study.
"Auguste Deifosse is described by Afdre" Planted de Terre'de Bruyere,
p. 239, 1864, as imbricated, star like, brilliant carmine, blended with ver-
milion and. striped with pure white. None.of the flowers that have. appeared
have been. of this type.. One of them more nearly approaches the old pictures
Bella.Romana is described by ngdre, p. 239, as a manificant flower
of the carnation group, imbricated, rosy white, powdered and striped with
carmine. Some of the growers indicate that Bella Romana and Madame de Strekaloff
are the same but Andre'(p. 245) describes the latter'by saying it approaches
Centifolia Alba but is more beautiful, flowers well imbricated, very double..
This indicates that the name Madame de Strekaloff, should not be'applied to any
of the current varieties.
Carnation and Rose nEmiy ;se6em to be identical from the limited number
of flowers secured sd far.' "Neithei" name ha6. any standing ih the ~iterature
nd. since the.,majority of plants sent in are under the name "Carnation", it
will be simpler to carry theii updpr that. name..

SIn 1825 Chandler and Buckingham, in Camellia Brittanica, described and
gave a picture of Chandleri' and in 831 .Chandler and Booth in Camellieae des-
cribed Chandler's variety "Elegans";' The old nursery catalogs 1 ted this
latter variety for years as Elegans (Chandler's) and in 1841 Berlese described
it as Chandleri elegans. T. V. Seidel, Nurseryman of Dresden, Germany, in his
catalog still carried it under the name Elegans as late as 1930. Berlese' *
mistake, therefore,.has not been universally accepted .nd the variety should
be *known' a Elegans. Marshal P. Wilder in the American' ardner' s Magazine
'and Register. 1" 94, 1836', 6scribes Elegans of C handler and Elegans of
Bollwiller. The'latter is described as a semi-.double pink r red of only
m4iddingo: rdinry' character. This was .one: of the reasons for using
-(Chaddters) following the. name.

The Donkelaari of the Southeast meets the old descriptions and checks
with imported plants. The variety is described in the catalog-of -~oic 4hrd
. Soeura ,f. Nants, France, as large, semi-double, light red bsptted _speckled)
wi2h.white. Imports from there check with the variety known in the southeast.
Victor de Bissch6p of Ghent, Belgium, inr his catalog lipts it'aas imricated,
..semi-double, red, spotted with white. Morren in L'Horticulteur. Bege I"Li 63,
1834, describes the"flowe'r as aha.hg 20 petals, an inch wide, .nearly twice as
long, oval, obtuse, entire, rose,variegated with white, striated.or waved with
the same color, the tints are blended and fade little by little* The heart of
the corolla is composed of 4-6 curled petals among which you can find four
stamens (more or less) coiled, fertile, with others which pass to th .state of
petals (petaloids). The flower is three or four inches. The variety commonly
known by this name on the FPaific Ooas'Iis identical with the- apanese variety
M. onjsu which 'is listed a s red or variegated. .Itlis .said that. the red variety
Sof Monjisu' kri knrw as Ssu a.

Empress, Grandiflora Rosea, and Lady Clare as sent in to the collec-
tion seem to be the same. None of them can be located in older literature
although Lady Clare is mentioned in a contemporaneous English book. Which
name has priority will have to be established later. For simplicity they
are combined under Empress in attached list, since the majority sent in are
under, that name.
Fanny Bolis or Basil is discussed under Gloire de Nantes.
Fimbriata first appears in American literature in Prince!s "A Short
Treatise on Horticulture', 1829,was first cultivated in 1816; and first des-
cribed in Loddiges Botanical Cabinet 12: pl. 1103, 1826& It should be called
Fimbriata rather than Alba Plena Fimbriata.
-Neither Gigantea, Kellingtonia, nor Kilwingtonia appear in the litera-
ture but Gigantea appears in Warren's Catalog for 1845-46 and.in Prince's
catalog for 1844-45 where it is listed as znew. -, Baachop lists Kilwingtonia
as a large imbricated flower; Guichard, Kellingtonia as peoniform red spotted
with white, Since only the Gigantea and Kellingtonia in the collection have
flowered and are the same, they will be carried under Gigantea since.it,ipre-
cedes Kellingtonia as far as present records show.
Gloire de Nantes
Gloire de Nantes, Fanny Bolis, Leana Superba, and Leans Superba Varie-
gated fall into one group as they appear in the collection. Leana Superba is
mentioned in Buist's American Flower Garden Directory (1839) as a chinese
variety-and- that he had received an inferior single red instead of the true
variety. Berlese in, the 1845 edition of- his Mon graphite .described eana,
Superba':or Goccinea Major aS"Very large with 7 dr 8 rows of petals, imbricated,
sometimes with banda of white on the petals and sometimes with the center of
ther.flower.broken up into several centers with large fertile stamens. Fanny
Bolis.is described by-Nicholson in. hi Dictionary of Gardening (1884) as
white, striped, and-,splashed with. crimson. Bisschop'.s catalog describes this
variety as white stripped only. Guichard Soeurs lists Wloire de Naptes as
originated by H, Guichard, large, semi-double, bright rose with: ong yellow
stamens, Leana Superba as imbricated, bright red, F;nny Bolis'ad i.ibricated,

Hier.m which is the German for Hearmes was no doubt, renamed by Seidel
from the Japanepe variety Hikari-genji,'. Since. this nabe seems to have ap-
peared in print before the other and is practically universalS. accepted, it
can take precedence over Hikari-genji, Jordan's Pride and Souvaenir de Henri
In Home Gardening 1,44 6-7, ll, 17, 20, 191, a posthumous article by
Mrs, Mary Debaillon relates how she gave local names to several camellias in
the vicinity of Lafayette, Louisiana. One of these was Laurel Leaf. T1 Tra-
monto is described in the catalog of Fratelli Sgaranatti, Saonara, Italy,
page 148, 1897 as having a large flower, reddish yellow, shaded clear carmine,
beautiful.. I1 TraPionto and Laurel'Leaf in the collection so far are the same.
Five plants of Lady Campbell have flowered and the two from the Pacific
0oast have been semi-double rose showing some stamens while the three from.the
Southqtat have .been. double ,iabriated. PriJOe. describes Lady Campbell'a
Camellia or Rbrioatue as a a rich deep red with pure' white stripes'on the
pet: 'The doublee all sheow-"reior leas. of this etriping.

Lady Marion has not flowered but it may be pointed out that Marion
is a masculine name and therefore is wrongly spelled unless it is a surname,
It cannot be found in the literature.
All of .the Lady Van Sitti, Setti, or Vansittart in the collection are
of the same~'abit of growth with distinctive pointed, twisted leaves with
seithe self or variegated flowers 'The variegated flowers are the type, It
also seems to" be true that the early distributors were Bobbink and Atkins
and Cottage Gardens. It ha been said that these two propagated their Material

Mathotiana (without the Ruhra) was first described in Annals de Gand,
IIIs 459, 1847, and appeared in the nursery catalogs soon after. It and
Mathotiana Alba which was first described in Iconographie des Pamellias
6: pl. 2, 1858, were seedlings produced,by a grower named. Matht in Ghent,
Belgium. The Guichards claim the introduction pf Mathotiana R68ose
Mathotiana and the variety como nly-known as William S. Hastle are identical
and since the Rev. John G. Drayton was just starting his gardens at the time
it appeared, the name Mathotiana should have-precedence.
Mrs, Afb Wilder
The Mrs. Abby Wilder situation is very complicated ,due to the wide
distribution of a misnamed plant. The true Mrs. Abby Wilder wap developed
by Marshal P. Wilder of Boston before 1841 and distributed in this country
and Europe by L. L. F. Warren. In the Horticulturalist I: 49, .1846,in a
report from the Massachusetts Horticuitural Society is found,a committee
report signed by Joseph Breck, Chairman, as follows:. ..No. 2 Camellia
japonica, Var. Mrs. Abb y Wilder. The name was given by the. committee in
honor of the lady of the President. This variety is a very beautiful one-
a rigorous shrub of upright growth .and strong branches; foilage.large and
handsome; leaves four inches long, by two and a half broad, rounded oval,
a little reflexed, coarsely dentate, aczminate, with prominent midrib and
nerves; yellowish green, resembling in- color..those of Camellia .Japonica
Lady Hume; bud round with pale4green scales; flower large (,ur inches or
more in diameter, thick, full, and perfect.; petals pf beautif.ul form, very
numerous, 90 to 100 in number; the exterior.rows broad, circular, gradually
diminishing in size to the center and arranged with great. regularity; color
white, with an occasional stripe of light rose, after the style of Duchesse
d'Orleans; corolla very round and a,great depth," .Mr..L.. L. F. Warren who
distributed the stock in this country and Europe found it widely distributed
in California in the late 1850a. Two of the plants that have flowered ap-
'proach this description but the others-will not if they are .of; the usual
type distributed. .
Monjisu has. been discussed with Do Klari.
Trlricolor is labeled variously a Tricolor Sieboldii and Tricolor.de
Sieboldii, It should be pointed out.that the latter. wit- h th.e mixture of the
French "de" and the LathiWending "ii", also meaning "of", is not permissible.
Tricolor was introduced from'Japan by Dr. Philipp F. von Siebold in 1832
and described in the Horticultural Journal 7: 61, 1837. Wakanoura and
Tricolor are identical.
