Description

» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1849, Catalogue, p.44 as ‘Ambrosoli’: 1851, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book 8, pl.4: The blossom is a more pleasing pink, regularly imbricated, open. Ordinarily the petals are oval, sublanceolate, full and apiculate; the central ones much smaller: rarely they are rounded, faintly emarginate. Very often a pale pink, longitudinal stripe separates the petal in two. Orthographic errors: ‘Ambrosil’, ‘Ambrosoli’, ‘Ambriosoli’. Originated in USA and named for Ambroise Verschaffelt.
