» English Description

Stefano Pagliai Catalogue, 1867, p.70: Small flower of Carmine red, veined sometimes with stripes of white on its small petals, perfectly imbricated.  Andrè, 1873, L'Illus­tration Horticole, vol.20, p.105, pl.129 as 'IL Giogello': Imbricated, vivid red, streaked with white. Flower of average size, regularly imbricated; petals orbicular, bluntly notched, of a deep carmine with fine veins of a deeper colour. A seedling from Italy originated by Santarelli. Orthographic errors: 'Il Giogello', 'Il Gigello', 'II Giorgello', ‘St Giojello’. Orthographic variant: 'Il Giojello'. Please note that although the plate is acutally the print No. 129 (Pl. CXXIX), by mistake in the original magazine edition of L'Illustration Horticole, André ed. (1873), Vol.XX, appeared with the No. 109 printed on the top right.
