...a rose nursery owner was astonished to see a Soleil d'Or abounding in densest green in August, the same over a Rayon d'Or, which he had never seen as beautiful and percet as this. The canes of the latter sort were up to 40 cm long; the blooms were resplendent in their densest yellow until wilting. The standard was located on the north side of the neighbouring house near the wall, had as a result maximum 2-3 hours of sun in the morning. This should confirm what O. Jacobs implied in Nr. 1 of the year 1916 [of the "Rosenzeitung"], that Rayon d'Or loves semi-shade. Other standards of this sort which were in a sunny place did not show this perfection.
