The picture above taken from The Flower Book by Edward Burne-Jones (1833–1898) is a series of 38 round watercolours, each about six inches across. Designs in the “Flower Book” are a fantasy on the popular name, rather than the actual appearance of the flower. According to Wikipedia, in a letter he wrote, “I want the name and the picture to be one soul together, and indissoluble, as if they could not exist apart; so many lovely names and nothing to be done with them.[4]”
