Roses: Their History, Development and Cultivation, p. 103 (1908)
Rev. Joseph H. Pemberton

The special points of a Noisette Rose are (1) its scent, the perfume of the original parent, the Musk Rose, being very apparent, especially in the earlier varieties. (2) The manner in which the flowers are produced; it blooms in clusters, coming from one corymb—that is to say, the foot-stalks of all the flowers on a stem start from the same point, like the Banksia Rose, for example. To better understand the difference between a Tea and Noisette Rose, compare Madame Hoste, a Tea, with Caroline Kuster, a Noisette. These roses are much alike when staged as specimen blooms, but look at them growing on the plant. The former produces its flowers from different parts of the stem, the latter from a corymb. Compare also the growth and formation of the flowering stalks of Lamarque, L'Ideale, and Celine Forestier with that of the Tea, and observe how liable is the bloom of a Noisette—especially Maréchal Niel—to break off at the junction of the foot-stalk with the main stem.

A study of the Noisette Rose will assist us in the matter of pruning. Like the Banksia, it usually flowers, not from the gross shoots as do the Teas, but from the smaller secondary wood of a previous year. This being the case, if the flowering wood is to be retained, the plant requires careful pruning. On the whole it is better not to prune at all, except to remove the old and, sometimes, the very young wood, doing so only for the purpose of admitting light and air.

The French are not such admirers of yellow flowers as we are, nor do they quite understand our admiration of Marshal Niel rose, or the yellow tea roses in general, however willing they may be to minister to our tastes in this respect.

Then Rikki-tikki went out into the garden to see what was to be seen. It was a large garden, only half cultivated, with bushes as big as summer-houses of Marshal Niel roses, lime and orange trees, clumps of bamboos, and thickets of high grass.

I do not know whether your correspondent Mr. Flitton would number me amongst the enthusiastic novelty-seekers; but as I was the first, either amateur or nurseryman, who had what I must still esteem the honour of an introduction to Marechal Niel, I should like to say a few words on your correspondent's objections. When I saw it with Monsieur Eugene Verdier at Paris I was particularly pleased with it, but even then my opinion of it was a qualified one. I said, "I am quite persuaded, if it open as well with us as it does in France, that it will be quite an acquisition;" and when it was figured I said, "There are one or two points which make us hesitate about it. It is said by M. Verdier to have been raised in the South of France, and consequently there must be some doubt as to the certainty of its opening well in England, for Boule d'Or, which we have seen in perfection from the neighbourhood of Paris, will not, without a good deal of coaxing, display its beauties with us; and then it is unquestionably in foliage and form of flower very like Isabella Gray, and therefore, we fear, is likely to partake of the defects of that flower." In all this I have not indulged in extravagant praise; and when I saw it pronounced in a contemporary as perfectly hardy, and knew that one grower of it had lost 2000 and another 1500, I could not but smile at the notion. Yet I cannot agree with your correspondent altogether. A shy flowerer I fear it will be; but I saw this time last year at Mr. Keynes's at Salisbury row after row of it, and every one of the plants loaded with flowers. On the Briar I fear it will not do very well; but Mr. Hedge, of Colchester, has succeeded in flowering it most profusely when budded on the Banksian Rose; and shy flowerer though it be, a bloom of it is invaluable. I have always contended it was a Noisette and not a Tea; so, I think, are Gloire de Dijon and Celine Forestier.

Will shading produce a deeper yellow in Maréchal Niel Roses? It may, and it may not; but so far as my experience is concerned I must say that it will not. At one time and another I have grown and cut some thousands of blooms of Maréchal Niel Rose both indoors and out, and have invariably noticed that the best coloured samples were procured from the most exposed positions. Take well-formed blooms from a tree growing on a south wall in the open air, for instance, fully exposed to the summer's sun. Are these deficient in colour? By no means, for compared with the majority of those grown under glass, the colour is far more intense.
