Description

» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1849, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VIII, pl.IV: This variety was obtained from seed in Belgium a few years ago. It belongs to the class of perfections by the extreme regularity of its imbrication, its soft pink colouring, broken by a few scarce, white, lon­gitudinal stripes. The flower is large, convexed and emarginate. Abbreviation: ‘Dr. Horner’. Orthographic variants: ‘Dottore Horner’, ‘Doctor Horner’.
