» English Description

Botanical Society of Sydney, 1848. No description. Guilfoyle Nursery Catalogue, 1866. No description. Taylor & Sangster Nursery Catalogue, 1877 stated that it was Guilfoyle’s seedling and described it as “carnation striped”. The present variety of this name has a light pink ground, heavily flecked and striped deep rose-pink. It is a rose form double, showing a few confused petals at the centre when fully open. Medium size, about 9 cm across. Midseason blooming. Orthographic errors and synonyms: ‘Guilfolius Halleana’, ‘Guilfoyle’s Helena’, ‘Guilfolius Hellena’, ‘Hellenor’, ‘Hellennor’, ‘Heleanor’, ‘Helemer’, ‘Helenor’(Guil­foyles), ‘Giulfoyle’s Helene’, ‘Guilfolius Halena’, ‘Light Helenor’. Because of similar colours and form, Helenor has been confused with Roma Risorta and, to some extent, with Optima.
