Those tips are not soft blush pink as in the old references. What do you suggest we do please NEroseman and AmiRoses?
We could mark AmiRoses photo as incorrect (and why)
or make another file named perhaps "South Orange Perfection - ex Rhode Island [or France?]"
or give the photograhed rose another "study name" entirely.

I've seen a surviving specimen of the correct variety. Blooms are quite small, dbl, opening soft pink fading white, fragrant. Matches descriptions collected in Dickerson's book "The Old Rose Adventurer", p.324.
