From the Vintage Garden website:
"Deep pink scrolled buds open to wide coronets of clear pink creased petals. Foliage is dark, handsome and very fine. This treads the line between Tea and China but whatever you call it, it is a superior shrub for the garden. Mrs. Keays grew a foundling she called “Creekside Manor” which is identical to what we received from the Huntington as Jean-Bach Sisley. She considered this the best candidate for the real Souvenir d’un Ami, a possibility worth re-investigating. What is currently offered under that name is clearly at odds with early descriptions and illustrations."
