This is a lower growing Tea, delicate thin foliage very dark new growth and somewhat tender. I have not found anything similar other than perhaps the foliage of Cels Multiflore, the flower though seems very different. It's to early to comment on disease resistance. Found locally here in S.W France, I have not found another occurance.

It's good to see these photos John. A lovely rose.
Does the colour vary greatly from season to season?
Do you know the approx age of the rose you found?

I'm not sure about the variation of the flower but so far not really. The building had been sitting empty for at least 60 years and before that time this was a very poor area so few roses were purchased between then and the turn of the 19/20 century particularly by agricultural workers plants were just handed down or swapped. Of course this is guess work.

Giovanni Spotti, as reported in Rivista della ortoflorofrutticoltura italiana, 1911, was " Direttore dello Stabilimento orticolo dei Fratelli Ingegnoli, valente ed appassionatissimo cultore di piante."

Yes, he was head of breeding at that company, being replaced by Ludovico Cazzaniga, who is almost certainly the breeder of this rose.

We've changed the breeder from Ingegnoli Bros to Ludovico Cazzaniga.

Hi galgal! Beautiful shot of Perle D’Or! Do you happen to remember what the fragrance was like? I read everything from “no fragrance” , to “very fragrant “. Was it spicy, by any chance? Thanks, Lisa

It is a light fresh damask! It is not super strong, but there are usually so many blooms, that it does waft in our humidity. It is a very strong fast grower (which I love) and grows upright. It is very drought tolerant & disease free! I planted mine so the sun would shine behind it and it makes the blooms glow. The foliage is a pretty bright green and makes a nice contrast with darker leaved roses. I have her planted under a limbed up pine and she gets part shade. She loves it.
