» English Description
Redouté et al.,1828, Annales Société Horticulture de Paris, 2:281-287 erroneously as ‘Dahliaeflora’. It was also listed in the Floricultural Cabinet, vol.III, 1835, p.186 as a “British hybrid with pale or light red flowers.” Berlèse in the three editions of his Monographie, 1837, 1840 and 1845, had the cultivar as being originated in England by Knight and described it as: Leaves deformed, some elliptical, a little obtuse, others lanceolate, acute, narrow, undulate, wrinkled, irregular, sabre or scythe form, of a greyish green; buds, pointed, scales green; flower semi-double, depressed, 6.8 cm across, rose-pink. The variation in its foliage gave it the synonym ‘Heterophylla’ or ‘various leaved’. The name ‘Dahliaeflora’ has been invalidly applied to two other cultivars; an Italian one originated by Casoretti, which is properly known as Ignescens and an American one raised by Seavey in California. Synonym: ‘Dahlaeiflora Heterophylla’. Orthographic errors: ‘Dahliaeflora’, ‘Dahlieflora’, ‘Dahlaeflora’, ‘Dahleaeflora’.
