» English Description
Verschaffelt, 1853, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book II, pl.II: It was obtained from seed in Belgium and the uncommon arrangement of its large bloosoms with their orange-rose colouring at the centre, becoming paler towards the margin, contrast with the monotonous regularity of the cogeneric varieties. The petals of the first two rows are very large, rounded, full, outspread, the following ones are smaller, rumpled, ruffled, and close set, recalling that of certain peonies.
