There is something reminiscent of Rosa majalis in Rosa x suionum (pubescence on young shoots, brownich red wood...). In my opinion, it doesn't look like an alba, neither a centifolia, so my guess is that the rose currently known as 'Minette' might not be the original or (as it oftens happens so) the original classification was a bit loose, if i may say.

From J. Steckler's Seeds Co almanac 1905, page 134

"Mme. Derepas Matrat.; Yellow Cochet. A pure Tea rose, very free-growing and hardy in character, withstanding ten degrees below zero. It throws up fine, strong stems, crowned by solitary buds of grand size; the color is a good sulphur-yellow, blooms very large, perfectly double, splendid form and freely produced. It has every quality necessary to make the ideal yellow bedder, ranking with the White and Pink Cochets in value as a Summer rose"

Thanks HubertG. Added. I have also added the 1914 Leedle ref and they didn't like it much.

Austin site says "Light fragrance". I was curious and checked, because this seems to be a common case when the rose is a rugosa x "indica type".

I don't recall offhand. If it were really fragrant I would likely remember. My plant doesn't have any open flowers right now, but it does have buds. Will try to remember to sniff once these open and post my opinion.

Ok, I checked the fragrance today, and I would say definitely moderate and quite sweet, old rose scent. Not one of my most fragrant roses but certainly not "light" either. Perhaps temperature has something to do with it. It is 81 degrees at present. With heat more scent is released than where Austin checked it?????

Yeah, many are like that. Some are the opposite, but less are that way.

This red rose, "Whatley Crescent", recently threw a sport from the base. The sporting bloom was pink, somewhat like 'Briarcliff' (which was a sport of Columbia). I apologise that I was running a bit too fast to stop and take a photo, but I am now wondering if the red "Whatley Crescent" could be 'Red Columbia', 1920.

Later edit. Probably not feasible because so far, I cannot find 'Red Columbia' entering Australia.

Is 'Warrior' from Paul 1906 worth considering? It was a winter flowering tea-like HT.
