» English Description

van Houtte Catalogue, 1858, 72:13: Very large flower, imbricated, soft rose striped with white. Verschaffelt, 1860, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book I, pl.IV as ‘Giardino Petraja’: Resembling Corradino by the size of its blossoms, arrangement and colouring, this variety, which is a perfection, is distinguished by its petals, somewhat less numerous and larger, more deeply emarginate, the centre of each longitudinally intersected by a pale, pink stripe set off by the deeper backgound. Sent to us by Cesar Franchetti in 1858. Orthographic errors and variants: ‘Giardino Petraja’, ‘Giardino Petreya’, ‘Giardino della Petraja’, ‘Giardino Petrajzo’, ‘Giardino Petraja’, ‘Giardino Petrazzo’, ‘Giardina Petrazzo’.
