The Queensland raised rose 'Penelope' was staged by the raiser at a meeting of the Horticulture Society of Queensland in July 1906 and was awarded the society's certificate of merit. It is claimed to be a seedling from 'Madame Lombard'; being self-fertilised. Plants of Francis Dubreuil and 'White Maman Cochet' were growing alongside. 'Penelope', in its flowers, shows distinct leanings to each of the two last roses, and little at all of 'Madame Lambard'. 'Madame Lambard' is a rose that produces seed freely. The other two varieties seldom produce seed.

from GARDEN NOTES By "HORTILANUS"
The Queensland raised rose Penelope was staged by the raiser at a meeting of the Horticulture Society of Queensland in July 1906 and was awarded the society's certificate of merit. It is claimed to be a seedling from Madame Lombard; being self-fertilised. Plants of Francis Dubreuil and White Maman Cochet were growing alongside. Penelope, in its flowers, shows distinct leanings to each of the two last roses, and little at all of Madame Lambard. Madame Lambard is a rose that produces seed freely. The other two varieties seldom produce seed. When Penelope was first introduced it at once became one of our most popular roses and it still retains its hold on the public. There is hardly any collection of roses at the present day that does not contain one or more plants of this beautiful Queensland-raised rose.
