Text sheet: "This is a neat small flowering variety, distinct from every other white, having a good deal of the character of the C. Sasanqua in the flower, but the leaves of Japonica. We believe it was raised by Messrs. Young. It flowers at the usual season, and is propagated in the same manner as the other kinds, by grafting on the single stock."Text sheet included.
