» English Description
Verschaffelt, 1852, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book I, pl.IV: Grown commercially for a few years already, it is said to be of English origin. The name refers to the unusual number of petals which compose the bloom, which is uncommonly large and of a uniform cherry-red. Its petals are wide, rounded and, in general, concave, upright, fully bilobate at the apex and very regularly imbricated. von Biedenfeld says it is from Biseau.
