» English Description

Verschaffelt, 1849, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book VIII, pl.I: By the arrangement of its numerous, erect and imbricated petals, it resembles a large, hundred petalled rose; to this is added a pink colour, streaked a pure white. At the centre it has upright, serried petals and it measures 12 cm or more in diameter. Mercatelli Catalogue, 1881: Imbri­cated flower, sometimes silky rose with white stripes, sometimes white with red streaks, some­times striped and marbled. It was originated in 1846 by M. Ch. De Loose of Ghent, Belgium as a sport of Cruciata. In 1849 van Houtte published the name ‘Cruciata Nova, de Pronay’ as a syn­onym. Other synonyms: ‘Cruciata Panaché’, ‘Maculata Perfecta’(de Loose) ‘Varische Vera’. Orthographic errors: ‘Maculata Perfetta’, ‘Maculada Perfecta’, ‘Macula Perfecta’, ‘Manculata Perfecta’. Van Houtte Catalogue, 1859, 77:53 gives this variety as a synonym for ‘Contessa de Spauri’ (as ‘Spaur’) but this is rejected as the evidence is not conclusive.
