Notes:
"Almerta Orchard Pink". Found in South Australia at a 1901 house.
Rough pedicels, receptacles cupped and incurved at the top, dark pink buds, 1 to 6 in a cluster, although mostly singly, round buds with sepals only just reaching the top of the bud. The upper surface of the petal is lighter than the darker reverse and there is a sheen to the reverse petals. Large prickles. Some similarities to 'Bon Silene' , but the flower seems a lighter colour and the hip of "Almerta Orchard Pink" is more orbicular. This foundling sets a hip, with seeds, for every flower. Impressed veining on leaflets. The leaflets are elongated when new and fresh-looking, broadening as they age and becoming more leathery. Possibly the same as "McClinton Tea" in the U.S.A.

"McClinton Tea", Found in the USA.
