The 'Real' Mathotiana?
I'm trying to get a handle on my camellia varieties, but 'Mathotiana' has me confused.
According to the International Camellia Register, 'Mathotiana' was bred in Belgium by M. Mathot around 1847. In the U.S., 'Julia Drayton' (a cultivar from Magnolia Gardens, c. 1908) was incorrectly called 'Mathotiana'- 'Julia Drayton' is apparently also called 'Purple Dawn'.
'Grand Sultan' is another camellia that may have been mistakenly labeled as 'Mathotiana'.
Does anyone have a clear idea of what the real 'Mathotiana' looks like? Comparison photos would be very welcome!
