According to Messrs. Haage & Schmidt, its introducers, this is a cross between B. semperflorens rosea and B. Schmidti, combining the good qualities of both parents. On account of its great profusion of bloom throughout the whole season it is decidedly the best bedding variety existing and may justly be called "incomparable." The color of the flowers being of a delicate pink does not suffer in the least by the inclemencies of the weather; it is always bright, may it be wet or dry, and this advantage renders it the more conspicuous and valuable. The leaves resemble those of B. Schmidti.
