Alister Stella Gray Noisette. Raised by Gray, introduced by George Paul (UK) 1894. ('Golden Rambler' in the US) Description.

'Allard' Rosa xanthina allardii Originated in the Botanic Garden at Lyon, France; listed by Messrs Hesse in 1927. I suspect it to be a seedling of R. x harisonii or of similar parentage, and it probably has no affinity with R. xanthina. It has similar leaves to R. x harisonii and thorny, dark wood; a bristly, squat receptacle, glandular calyx, and small down-curved prickles on the pedicel. The flowers are nearly double, with petaloid centre and yellow stigmata; true, bright yellow and a fresh scent. Probably 4 feet.
