Anonymous, 1848, Floricultural Cabinet, vol.16. A seedling of the English Nurseryman, Hugh Low, Clapton, England; Verschaffelt, 1851, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book II, pl.I: In the absense of foliage a bloom could be mistaken for a Flemish Carnation, due to the imbricative arrangements of the petals and its poppy coloured stripes. The blossom, of medium size, but perfect form, is a delicate pink with the poppy coloured stripes. Ortho­graphic errors: ‘Caryophilloides’, ‘Carroyphylloides’, ‘Caryophhoides’, ‘Caryopylloides’, ‘Caryphilloides’. Synonym: ‘Caryophylloides Paeoniiflora’, ‘Caryophylloides Nova’, ‘Low’s Caryophylloides’.
