[author cites from the Journal des Roses 1878] ...Among the seedlings which didn't bloom until the second or third year was found one which had blossoms with two rows of petals, an inch to an inch and a half across..., not remontant as the others were, but which gave me [Guillot] wonderful seeds which I sowed in February, 1872. Out of this came my dear little 'Pâquerette', which I put into commerce in November, 1875."

[author cites from Revue Horticole 1876] ...'Polyantha' is very hardy... It seeds easily, producing many varieties, which however are not out yet-single pinks, double pinks, single and double yellows, and a very double white. This last is going to be released to commerce. ...This very double white-blossomed plant looks like a miniature Noisette; it seems to be the equivalent of the Pompon Chinas, and could be used, like them, in borders...It was to be seen at the last exposition at the Palais de l'Industrie, in the booth of Messrs. Lévêque and son....under the name 'Paquerette', in allusion to the small size of all its parts, and the elegance of its flower.

‘Paquerette’ was the first Polyantha, raised in France in 1875. It is said to have been the first direct cross between Rosa multiflora and a China rose. What purports to be this rose is still growing today, but there is little evidence that it was ever very popular with nineteenth-century gardeners.
