This is one of the few registered Saunders lactifloras although he obviously had many lactiflora seedlings under number which he used in various crosses with other species. Its registration date has appeared as either 1921 or 1942, but it seems more likely the earlier date is correct as it correlates with the registration date of his best known lactiflora, ‘Silvia Saunders’.
