Corsica X Macrophylla
One plant of the Mediterranean species Corsica reached Clinton from Barr's nursery in England in 1924. It died. Two plants came from Lemoine in 1928. One died. Four more plants came from Barr again five years later. The five plants were widely used in crossing, and with macrophylla a hybrid was produced, named Picotee, a delightful little thing whose white flowers are edged "picoteed"bright pink. It is fertile, and its children closely resemble the parent, in this case a most happy circumstance.
