» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1855, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VIII, pl.I: M. Emile Defresne of Liege, Belgium, who obtained this variety from seed from the cross of ‘Weimari’ (Weymarii) x Eximia, first bloomed it in 1853. According to the desire of the producer it was dedicated to the President of the Belgium Chamber of Representatives, M. A.Delfosse. Besides their star-like arrangement of splendid regularity, the blossoms present an unusual colouring, the vivid shade, recalling Leeana Superba, a pure carmine with a tint of cinnibar red and few white stripes. Orthographic errors: ‘Aguste Delfosse’, ‘Alphonse Delfosse’, ‘August Delfosse’, ‘Auguste Del Fosse’, ‘Augustine Delfosse’, ‘Augusta Delfusse’, ‘August Del Fosse’, ‘Augusta Delfonse’, ‘Auguste Delfrosse’, ‘Augusto Delfosse’, ‘Auguste Delfosses’, ‘Auguste Delafosse’, ‘Augusta Delfosse’, ‘Augusto del Fosso’, ‘Auguste De Fosse’, ‘Auguste Deofosse’.
