Description

» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1860, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book XII, pl.III: Independently of its large floral dimensions, of the perfect imbrication of its numerous petals, of its charming, small foliage...it is a pinkish red, transparent, glossy, with vivid, satiny tints. It measures 10-11 cm in diameter and formed of numerous ovate-oblong petals, slightly emarginate at the apex. It was obtained from seed in Ghent, Belgium. We have dedicated it to Charles Enke, Chief Gardener to Prince Troubetskoy of Moscow.
