Description

» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1860, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VII, pl.IV on page fac­ing plate: A perfection amongst perfections. We are indebted it to Count Bouturlin, Florence, Italy in whose garden it was raised from seed. Its blooms, of medium size, have short, rounded petals at the circumference, then they become oblong to the centre. Of a vivid pink at the cir­cumference, they then become a delicate pink, almost white, while the heart itself is crimson pink. Orthographic variants: ‘Comtesse Marianna’, ‘Contessa Mariana’. Orthographic error: ‘Countessa Mariana’.
