...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.

Rayon d'Or (Pernet-Ducher, 1910).-This Rose can fairly be termed unique, raised from Mme. Melanie Soupert crossed with Soleil d'Or. It created a great sensation when first exhibited, and its fame spread to England long before we saw flowers of it....when it was awarded the gold medal, it attracted all who saw it by reason of its colouring....its first year found it suffering very much from over-production, and the plants that reached us were surely the smallest that were every flattered by the name of plant....It is a vigorous grower, of fairly branching habit, rather apt to send up one strong shoot that absorbs all the strength of the plant. Excellent foliage, of bright bronze green colour, that seems quite mildew-proof...The great feature of the flower lies in its wonderful colour: it is without question the deepest yellow Rose we have, and the colour lasts; but...to my mind, better in the garden than in the house, the colour being a little crude for decoration...and its thorns are terrible....It is free-flowering, and the flowers are not injured by rain....
