» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1851, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book XI, pl.III: The blossom is unusually ample and by the tumbled arrangement of its petals, occupies a position between the fancy varieties and the perfections. To this is added a rich, minimum cherry-red colour. The petals of the first rows are oblong, apiculate or emarginated, outspread or half upright; the fol­lowing and central ones are smaller, upright, hooded and often lobate at the edge. Originated by Verschaffelt, Belgium. Orthographic errors: ‘Comte Bobrensky’, ‘Comte de Boobrinsky’, ‘Comte Bobrinski’, ‘Compte de Bobrinsky’, ‘Conte Bobrinski’, ‘Comte Broobrinsky’, ‘Conte de Broobrinsky’, ‘Conte de Broobinski’.
