Alba Rosea Virginalis  Berlèse, 1840, Monographie:. ed.2, p.199, 200, 235 Berlèse received this without a name and called it ‘Alba Rosea Virginalis’. However in his 1845 Monographie he says he saw it at the Ghent Exhibition of 1844 as Miniata Striata. It was listed by most nurseries of the time as Miniata Striata, but all later than 1840. However it is a seedling originated by Lows Nursery, London and the originator’s name has priority.
