» English Description

Jean Verschaffelt, 1865-1866, Catalogue, No.9, p.2: This magnificent variety was obtained by M.Kips of Brussels, which last year he named for his wife Mme Eugénie de Massena. Its habit is beyond reproach and foliage dark green. The large flowers are well imbricated, bright pink with crimson veins and widely bordered pure white. Bull Nursery Catalogue, 1867; Verschaffelt Catalogue, 1867-1868, p.41 and Loureiro Catalogue No.9, 1872-1873 as ‘Eugene de Massina’ under “foreign novel­ties”, all without description. However The Floral Magazine, 1873, pl.84, illustrates and describes ‘Eugenie de Massina’ as a cupped flower of deep blush colour. The illustration is quite unlike Rollisson’s Eugénie de Massèna and the date is too early for it to be a sport of ‘Dom Pedro V’ and it is thus considered a different cultivar with prior claim to the name.
