» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1855, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book 4, pl.2: Most beautiful amongst the perfectly imbricated white varieties, due to the correct imbrication of its numerous, small, well-shaped petals of purest white, forming blooms larger than average. We obtained it from seed ourselves and seen it bloom in the spring of 1853. Its profuse flowering is especially remarkable, our parent plant had about 50 blooms at one time, which opened easily and contrasted with the dark green of its medium size, compact foliage. Originated in Belgium, by Verschaffelt.
