This is also the case of Henry Price another Great Eastern seedling that originated at the same time (1944). This was named for Sir Henry Price when he secured a plant for Wakehurst Place, Sussex. It flowered there for the first time in 1964. It is a large formal double, deep crimson in colour.” Originated by E.G. Waterhouse. Gordon, NSW, Australia.
