Notes:
'Narcisse' and 'Enfant de Lyon' are usually shown as synonyms, but they were probably originally two distinct roses. William Paul and the 1902 catalogue of l'Ha├┐ lists them separately. - see References. There was also an earlier 'Narcisse'.
Most probably 'Narcisse' was a noisette bred by Mansais in 1845, and 'Enfant de Lyon' a tea-noisette commercialized by Avoux & Crozy before 1853.
