A very old variety from Italy, raised by Onofrio Maggi some time in the middle of the 19th century.By 1862 the RHS had awarded it a first class certificate. In the original description the flowers had a pure white background with red flecks, the petals very tightly imbricated. My plant is looser and has a distinct pink tinge.
