Description

» English Description

Hogg, 1839, Magazine of Horticulture, 4:155: A seedling of Floy, this name was subsequently invalidly applied to a C.japonica by Macarthur in Australia and to a C.sasanqua by Sawada in the USA. It has also been used erroneously as a synonym for Moss Point Varie­gated and Belle Jeanette in the USA. In 1858, van Houtte erroneously gave it as a synonym for Leda. Charles van Geert Catalogue, No.117, 1850, p.4.: Anemone form, blood red. Orthographic error ‘Cleopatre’.
