The picture John Richards captions as burseriana Falstaff is in fact S. x irvingi His Majesty This has burseriana as one of the parents but is quite distinct. Raised by Russell V Prichard in 1927
The image I posted previously was a seedling from a typical burseriana, this one is slightly smaller and has crenate petals, it is useful as it show the variation inherent in the species, not a lot in this case. The pic with this post is the parent and is more typical
I bought from Aberconwy Nursery last Autumn Sax burseriana ( Duncan Lowe Form )It has been in flower for the last two weeks with the largest burseriana flowers I have seen. It looks a very good plant to have Does anybody know were it came from.
David I believe the stock was given by Duncan to Brian Burrows who then passed it to Aberconwy. In SAX by W.Harding he talks of a form he collected years ago, Duncan did illustrations for the book perhaps Winton passed a plant to him.
