Nabonnand’s description is right. Large flowers but not extremely full when fully open. Balls in wet weather though. Although this rose looks like a generic pink tea, the petals have a very delicate texture, much like tissue paper. A light fragrance, tea and sweet makes this bloom delightful. It’s very free flowering. The bush is vigorous and disease resistant here in the wet and humid climate of Northwest Florida. Growth is of the twiggy, dense type, much like Mlle Franziska Krueger. Petioles are often droopy but sometimes blossoms are held erect. Great for cutting, long stems too.

LIST OF ROSES NOW IN CULTIVATION AT CHATEAU ELEONORE, CANNES,
WITH DESCRIPTIVE NOTES.
BROUGHAM & VAUX.
CHATEAU ELEONORE, CANNES.
May 1898
London : JOHN & E. BUMPUS, LTD. 1898.

COMTESSE DE LEUSSE.

Tea — Nabonnand, 1879.
Tender rose colour with centre shaded almost to gold, ruby coloured buds,
large flowers, not very full and imbricated. Plant vigorous, growing to a large
size, very free-flowering, altogether a splendid variety, shows to great advantage
in a semi-shaded situation. I do not think this fine rose is much known in
England, where, judging from its manners and customs here, it should succeed.
