Raised by James Priaulx, Guernsey, from seed of ‘Middlemists’ (Middlemist’s Red). The plant combines the vigor of that variety with the valuable property of a profuse bloomer. Berlèse, 1840, Monographie, ed.2, p.97 as ‘Marquise d’Exeter: We do not have the description of this flower but Harrison’s Floricultural Cabinet, May,1838 says that it is the largest flower known in England. It is very full, well made, pink and showy. Figured and described by Berlèse, 1843, Iconographie, vol.3, pl.298: The flower, 14-15 cm in diameter, is full complete double; colour rose, more or less intense with a touch of velvet red. The petals in 9-10 rows, are numerous, cupped, rounded, lightly emarginate, the others entire, a few deeply notched, symmetrically imbricated from the circumference to the centre. Verschaffelt, 1849, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book XI, pl.III as ‘Marquise d’Exeter’. Orthographic variants: ‘Marquis d’Exeter Pink’, ‘Pink Marchioness of Exeter’, ‘Marchionnes of Exeter’, ‘Marchioness de Exter’, ‘Marchioness de Exeter’. Orthographic errors: ‘Marchionessao Fexeter’, Marchiones of Exeter’. Sport: Rosularis. Synonyms: ‘Marquisa’, ‘Bright Pink’, ‘Candy Pink’. Magnolia Gardens, South Carolina, USA listed a cultivar of their own raising as ‘Marquis of Exeter’ from their 1942-1943 catalogue and on. This became confused with the true Marchioness of Exeter in USA. Chinese synonym ‘Houjue Furen’.
