Verschaf­felt, 1851, Nouvelle lconographie, Book VI, pl.IV as ‘Queen of England’ (Fielder): Obtained from seed in England a few years ago ... It is distinguished by its extremely vivid, cherry-red blos­soms, with petals, ample, rounded, convex, quite spread out, delicately veined in a deeper shade, with a few longitudinal, pale or whitish, sometimes double stripes.
