China Roses
W. L. Carter

Lesmesle belongs to a China type of which there are recorded other varieties whose colour changes were even more startling. Examples of these include Laffay's Courtesan, a pure white changing to fiery red; Prevost's Camellia, pale rose passing to cerise; and Louis Noisette's Bengale à grandes feuilles. whose double blooms opened a delicate rose, changed to carmine, and ended bright purple.

Modern Roses 12 spells this as Camélia Rose, as does Vintage Gardens book of Roses, yet the references favor 2 l's as in Camellia. Do I dare ask how the difference originated?

Most likely, it's probably just a typo.

Camelia japonica is the old spelling in the nomenclature: Camellia japonica the new-one
In France they call(ed) it Camélia: As for instance In La Dame aux camélias, a partially autobiografic book (1848) of Alexandre Dumas fils.
But whether the rose-name should be altered because of this?
