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.

It goes nicely with its companions.

Thanks Margaret. As long as there is not another slithery companion going Sisssss at me. I really like bare beds so I can see any snakes.

Patricia what is the pretty pink flower complementing the rose so well? I have grass snakes, lizards and slow worms living under sheets of corrugated iron that I've put down for them but like most of British wildlife they are rather drab and boring.

Some sort of Verbena I think. I've had it now for 21 years and it likes the acid soil conditions here. It came as a passalong when I also acquired "Beryl Turner's Tiny White" - see that reference.

Thank you Patricia, I thought it was a verbena, just wondered if you knew which one so I could try and get seed, it would be great for bedding out. I like the phrase "It came as a passalong...", just as Verbena bonariensis and Viola labradorica piggy-backed their way into my garden in the pots of other plants.

What a beautiful combination, Matt! Perle D’Or looks wonderful with Rosette Delizy.(and Blush Noisette too, of course) Do you detect much fragrance from your Perle D’Or? I’ve heard everything from “very fragrant”, to “none at all”. If you do get fragrance, is it peppery at all? Spicy? Thanks, and again, lovely bouquet!!! Lisa
