Berlèse, 1849, Annales Société Centrale d’Horticulture de France, vol.40, p.228: Flower 10-11 cm across, anemone form, of deep, vermilion to gleamimg velvety, crimson red, with bands of pure white. Petals in 3 or 4 rows, full, about 4 cm wide by 5 cm long, close set, regularly imbricated, the white is uneven similar to ‘Donckelaeri’ (Masayoshi); those of the centre, anemone form, small, equal, numerous, and forming an equally well filled interior, sometimes variegated, sometimes self red. “By its rarity and merit this flower encourages me to name it for a distinguished achiever of Northern Italy. Originated in Italy.
