» English Description

Caledonia Nursery Catalogue, 1874: No description. Gerbing Aza­lea Gardens Catalogue, 1938-1939: Loose peony form flowering of a good size, light pink; small, glossy foliage; mid-season flowering. Orthographic errors: ‘Duchess de Rohan’, ‘Duchesse de Rowan’, ‘Duchess de Roban’. Synonym: ‘Stiles Perfection Pink’. The synonymy given with Preston Rose (SCCS., 1947) seems doubtful and is rejected. The black and white photo, p.102, Hertrich, 1955, Camellias in the Huntington Gardens, vol.II shows a variegated form. Originated by the Caledonia Nursery, The Channel Isles.
