The synonym 'A fleurs gigantesques' is suggested.
Pépinières Loubert catalogue for 2002 suggests the names 'Marie Louise' and 'Blush Belgic' as synonyms for this rose and cites the provenance of this rose as France c. 1800.
Lloyd Brace at The Roseraie at Bayfields says this is the same rose (Agathe Incarnata) they listed as 'Agatha' in their '97 catalog.
