» English Description

Luzzatti, 1851, Collezione di Camelie, p.23: Flower perfectly imbricated, of a clear rose with stripes of white. Verschaffelt, 1854, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book XI, pl.III: It is conspicuous for its peculiar colouring being fasciculated half pink and half white, which two colours contend for the surface of the petals. It forms blossoms well above the average size, imbricated with some irregularity. The petals are of different shapes, either rounded or lanceo­late, full or bilobate. At the centre they are ruffled and overlap one another. It is a beautiful, streaked variety. Originated in Florence, Italy. Orthographic errors: ‘La Constitucione’, ‘La Constitution’, ‘La Constitutione’, ‘La Constituzione’, ‘La Constituzioni’.
