Description

» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1855, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book XI, pl.III: Mr Van Geersdale of Ghent, Belgium, who sent it to us and informed us it was of Italian origin. The perfect imbrica­tive form of its blooms, larger than average, the numerous, rounded petals which compose them and their ruddy, uniform rose colour are pleasing qualities. Orthographic error: ‘Are­tusa’.
