Hi Jip,
This is the illegitimate synonym of P. "Pink Capricorn", a cultivar with
strong capitatum influence but more compact in growth and different
tingue of flowers. Since it is no species form, the name was changed
into a proper one that avoids the use of a species name (source: Peter
Aboot's book on scenteds). Know Theo Jeukens still sells it as Pink
Capitatum (bought it there a year ago) but assume that is because the UK
colleague he got it from still has it listed as such.
>From my files:
Pink Capricorn, flower mauverose with white eye, scented leaf,
rose/lemon mixture
Any out there knowing more about its origins and ancestry?
