» English Description
Verschaffelt, 1856, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book I, pl. IV: Remarkable for the perfection of its form and its ruddy pink colouring. It was obtained from seed by M. Franchetti, Florence, Italy, from whom M. Miellez at Lille has bought the entire stock. A particular charm is the evenness and perfect imbrication of its numerous petals, which compose blooms of lovely, delicate pink with a pale pink stripe in each. Orthographic errors: ‘Annetta Franchetti’, ‘Annetti Franchetti’.
