This rose was still available in 1939 in Sydney, Australia as it appears in the 1939 Hazlewood Bros. catalogue, albeit under an addendum of available but infrequently demanded roses.

"Souv. de Gilbert Nabonnand (T.) (Nabonnand, 1920), 4. -- Coppery pink."


The '4' refers to the general habit of growth the Hazlewoods allocated to a rose, in this case 4 indicates "Tall, rampant, growing, non-climbing sorts, which must be placed in the back row if the best effect is to be gained."

Refer also to the nursery listing for Hazlewood Bros photo listing their heights.

Reminds me of my Westerland seedling:
Only mine is not a miniature-rose, but a shrub.

From the Rosen-Zeitung Dec 1903 page 77, accompanying the colour plate of Mme Jacques Charreton and Mme Badin.

MME BADIN (Croibier 1897).

Die beiden Teerosen sind keine der erstklassigen Prunkrosen und nicht zu allen Zwecken unter die empfehlenswertesten zu reiben, sondern sie haben Wert als Sammlungs-Rosen durch ihr reiches Blühes und ihre eigenartgen Färbungen.


Mme Badin wurde von einem erst in den letzten Jahren unter die Neuheitzüchter geratenen Lyoner Rosengärtner dem Handel übergeben. Diese Rose erinnert im Bau, in der Farbe und dem Wuchs an Mme Cusin, doch sind die Blumen länger gestielt und reiner in der Farbe. Mme Badin ist reichblühend wie eine Bengalrose, dabei von festem Bau, spitzknospig, mittelgross und gut gefüllt, aber bei jedem Wetter leicht aufblühend. Die Farbe ist auf dem Bilde richtig wiedergegeben, das lebhafte karminrot am Rande wechselt mit einem kupfriggelben Ton zur Mitte zu ab. Der Strauch bleibt niedrig, ist reich seitwärts verzweigt und bildet, in Partieen zusammen gepflanzt, dankbare Beete und gute zum Schnitt geeignete Blumen. Das Laub ist fest lederartig, glänzend dunkelgrün.

My translation:

These two tea roses are not among the first-class show roses nor among the most recommended for all purposes, but they have value as collection roses because of their generous flowering and their singular colourations.


Mme Badin was introduced into commerce by a Lyon rose gardener, who had only in recent years become a breeder of new varieties. This rose is reminiscent of Mme Cusin in construction, colour and growth, but the flowers are longer stalked and are purer in colour. Mme Badin is free flowering like a China rose, while having a solid construction, pointed buds, is medium-sized and nicely double, yet opening easily in any weather. The colour is accurately reproduced in the illustration, the lively carmine red on the edge changing to a coppery yellow shade towards the centre. The shrub remains low, branching sideways well and, when planted together, forms rewarding beds and good flowers suitable for cutting. The foliage is hard and leathery, shiny dark green.
