Update: My 'Kiss Kordana' finally formed 1 hip. Definitely not a seed-fertile parent.

(How) are we sure that the referenced parent of this rose is the reddish bourbon 'Madame Desprez' and not the white China by the same name and breeder?

re: Augusta
The roses bloom at the termination of the first growth of the winter buds, and were in clusters of three and four upon the branches sent me. I send you one of the largest leaves upon this season's growth; the terminal leaves all have two small leaves (or stipules) at the base, which neither Lamarque, Solfaterre nor Chromatella possesses.

As to the Augusta rose, we saw it at Mr. Fulton's nursery last week, but the bloom was rather far gone; it seemed much like Le Pactole, but larger. The general opinion seems to be that it is not sufficiently distinct from Chromatella for a new name; whether it be more hardy remains to be proven.
