[Author cites information from different sources and, in particular, an interesting entry from the breeder..] ...From thse seedlings, I further got many varieties equally dwarf and very remontant...with soft pink flowers which were full and well-formed though small [this, presumably, is 'Mignonette']; I am going to propagate a quantity sufficient to deliver them into commerce in November 1880...
