Do you know Tiny Bell and Victor Emmanuel II ?

laurie_bray(z8)December 22, 2005


I'm looking for pictures of Tiny Bell, not the pink one (called Tiny Belle), but another, a red one (seen in Paris, in the Parc Floral). Same question for Victor Emmanuel II ? Is it the same than Victor Emmanuel. If you have pictures or description, or links, it will be great.

Thank you for answering. Merry Xmas.

I do not know Tiny Bell. But, I have seen Camellia's flower "Vittorio Emanuele II". " King Victor Emanuele ", is the synonymous one of the same flower.
This one painting, only it is an example.

The flower of Camellia japonica cv. 'Vittorio Emanuele II', appears in " Flore de Serres " of Verschaffelt.
You can follow the Optional LINK.

Regards. Happy Christmas.
