Walter Good:

Terpsichore' blüht einfach mit zwei Reihen Petalen. Die korallenrosa gefärbten Blüten sind von roten und orangen Adern durchzogen und oftmals aprikosenfarben überhaucht. Die lebhaft gewellten inneren und äusseren Petalen verleihen der Blüte etwas Tänzerisches. Terpsichore war die Muse des Tanzes, des Chores und des Gesanges.
