Edin. xi (19^9)? 71- Very closely allied to typical Rh, sanguineum Franch., the subspecies haemaleum differs in having black-crimson or dark crimson flowers. The original description is modified to include forms with glabrous as well as with puberulous stamens. This modification is necessary, as has been shown, to avoid ambiguity in naming forms with crimson flowers and puberulous stamens and those with black crimson flowers and glabrous stamens. From the horticultural stand-point the subspecies haemaleum is a distinctive plant very similar to the subspecies mesaeum Balf. f. MS. in which, however, the bud-scales are persistent.
