Buckley's description as quoted by T. Moore: "has the particular coppery tinge of its male parent, slightly suffused with purple from the female; it has also the reflexed petals of the latter, which it resembles in form and size, whilst in growth and in the freedom of blooming it resembles truncatum, this is the smallest of the three."
