Princesa Maria Beatriz  (C.reticulata) European Reg. No. 154.  Seedling of unknown parentage, originated by Casimiro Alves Bastos, of Valongo Do Vouga, Portugal; first bloomed in 2009.  Named by the originator for his daughter, referring to the nickname, “My Princess”, given by her grandfather when she was born.  The plant shows upright growth, with a medium growth rate.  Buds are fat and elongated, of light green color.  The full semi-double blooms are dark rose pink (Pantone 205C), with a wavy array of petals.  A few same-color petaloids can occur.  Stamens and filaments are yellow, loosely arranged among the petaloids and central petals; usually several of the inner petals have white ribs.  Spent blooms fall whole.  Medium-sized leaves are long and narrow, light green.  Blooming comes in mid-season, over a lengthy time.
