Discovered by Ralph S. Moore (United States, 1990).
China / Bengale.  
Breeder's notes:
The story as related to me by Mr. Moore years ago, is that a customer provided him with cuttings from the Viridiflora the customer grew which produced bronzy "petals" instead of the plain, leaf-like petals of the original. Growing and propagating it under the greatly accelerated conditions in the green houses at Sequoia resulted in the plant "reverting" to a semi single, pink China.

Sequoia didn't offer the Reversion commercially. Thankfully, Mr. Moore shared it and it exists today.
