Buckley's description as quoted by T. Moore: "flower is double the size of Russellianum (S. russelliana) and in color differs from both parents, being a bright rose red; the growth is similar to that of truncatum (S. truncata), but flowers have regular (not gaping) form of the female parent, as well as straight stamens and short angular seed-vessel; it is a very free bloomer." T. Moore's description: "flowers large, the divisions of the perianth in two remote series sub-regular, crimson-red petals broadly oblong, abruptly acute (tips); filaments and style straight, ovary angular. q.v. flower colour etc.: large regular flowers reported as rose bengal (RHS 57B)." SRL description: flowers are pendant, opening rose red becoming reflexed with maturity. Tubes are straight, pink flushed white. Stamens are white, straight with grey pink tinged pollen coated anthers. Style is red with a magenta pink stigma barely emerging from the anther cluster.
