THE GESNERA-FLOWERED SAGE.

(SALVIA GESNERAEFLORA.)

ORIGINAL PRINT

 [PLATE 47.]  

Date: 1851-1852

A magnificent Greenhouse Herbaceous Plant, from CENTRAL AMERICA, belonging to the Order of LABIATES

Excerpt from text, which is included along with a copy of the Title Page:

THERE is great difficulty in saying in what precise particulars this differs botanically from S.fulgens,or Cardinalis; the habit, foliage, and mode of flowering are the same in both, nor is there any difference in the flowers beyond what is pointed out in the foregoing character. Nevertheless the two plants are in 'a horticutural point of view quite distinct. This flowers all through the autumn and winter, S.fulgens is a summer species. The latter, handsome as it sometimes becomes, is no favourite on account of its incurably bad habit of becoming shabby and casting its blossoms. This on the other hand is of vigorous constitution, holds its flowers as well as a Gesnera, after which it is
happily named, and has a flue rich brilliant green foliage................

Order#: PAX-47

Size: 8 ˝” x 11”

Paxton produced The Magazine of Botany, and Register of Flowering Plants. This series of magazines was published in London 1834-1849. During the years of 1850-1852, Paxton along with John Lindley published the rare three-volume work: PAXTON’S FLOWER GARDEN. Represented are many exotic species especially fine Orchids. They are often compared to the early volumes of Warner and Williams, Orchid Album. The print offered for sale here is from this first edition, which is a completely different product to the 1882 color printed edition frequently found. These prints were produced using a zincographic process along with hand coloring and have the plate markings Pinx & Zinc.

Condition: Excellent Vibrant color with some very minor spotting.

Price: $59.99
