» English Description

Verschaffelt Catalogue, 1849-1850, p.46. No description; Franchetti, 1855, Collezione di Camelie, p.31: No description. Verschaffelt, 1855, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book IV, pl.III, as ‘Frederico Confalonieri’: Originated by Louis Slade, Lake Como, Italy. Its unusually large blooms, by the disarray of their innumerable petals, contrast with the perfections. The tumbled and serried arrangement of the central petals surrounded by larger ones, recalls our full herbaceous peonies; all are a vivid cherry carmine colouring. Mid-season. Ortho­graphic variants and errors: ‘Frederic Gonfalonieri’, ‘Frederico Confalonierii’, ‘Frederico Con­falonieri’, ‘Frederico Gonfalonieri’, ‘Frederico Confallonieri’, ‘Frederica Confalonieri’, ‘Federicco Gonfalonieri’.
