The blooms may be miniature-- but the bush is not! This rose grew to a hefty 8' wide by 6' tall in the Virginia Zoo's organic garden. Sadly it was removed because it far outgrew the space.
I love this more than Cecile Brunner because of the delicate color-- enjoyed on cool mornings here before it fades to buff. The perfume is delightful and there's a silken quality to the ribbon-like petals.

I can imagine. When a rose is "happy", it often out-performs expected heights and widths. I suspect this rose really, really liked your climate, soil and care.

My Perle d'Or had to be relocated from the front to my side yard because it outgrew its space. The new space really isn't adequate, either, but the nice thing about this rose is that it doesn't mind being pruned - whenever! It's July in N. Alabama, hot and mostly dry, and I'm pruning it back by about half. I expect it to continue to grow like a weed (or a small climber). I prefer planting roses to fit a space, but if it doesn't work out that way, having a rose that can be pruned at any time and still perform, is my kind of rose. I'm a no-spray rose grower, and casual about feeding (but good about watering), so this rose is performing extremely well despite my benign neglect. Well deserving of its Earth-Kind designation.
Update late April 2017 - moved it again Feb. 2017, this time to a space that originally had a Noisette - clearly enough space for this muscular Perle d'Or. One friend said I probably had the climbing version, but my copy doesn't get that big. Considering how much I had to cut back this shrub and its roots, I was surprised that it not only lived but is thriving.

As 'Mlle. Cecile Brunner' has nothing to do with 'Perle d'Or', should it be listed as a hidden synonym on the 'Perle d'Or' page instead of a proper synonym. I do see the references which have linked them both, but I think they may be incorrect.

I believe both 'Perle d'Or' and 'Geoirge Elger' were marketed in USA as the Yellow C├ęcile Brunner.

In Texas, Perle d'Or is 'Earhkind.'
