» English Description

James Burnett, 1837, Magazine of Botany and Gardening, new ser. vol.3:152 as ‘Elegans’ (Bolwiller). A semi-double pink or red flower of only ordinary character. Berlèse, 1837, Monographie, ed.1, No.85 as ‘Elegans’: Flower, large single, cherry red; petals veined with purple and rather deeply notched at the summit. There is another variety of this name with a double flower, which is very handsome. This was the listing that caused Berlèse to list the prior valid Elegans as ‘Elegans’(Chandleri), thereby forever confusing it with its sister cultivar Chandleri. Synonym ‘Elegans Angliae’.
