McM&H 1995: 93c. 1860. This appears to be a later Buckley hybrid using S. russelliana × S. truncata. This is an historical cultivar and was listed as Aurantiacum. Newer versions of this early hybrid have been recreated. Because the truncatas used are modern cultivars, these may already contain russelliana genes, which brings into question the resulting progeny being true F1 hybrids.
