'Butterfly Kisses' rose References
Website/Catalog  (28 Feb 2018)  
Butterfly Kisses   This extremely healthy, free-flowering polyantha rose was released in 1920, also known as ‘Chatillon Rose’, ‘Phalaenopsis’ & ‘Nearly Wild’. Grows hip high producing dense, large sprays of 25 to 45 single blooms virtually forever. Ideal border plant that responds well when trimmed with hedge clippers. Prominent stamens attract butterflies.

Chatillon (Nonin, 1923): the flowers are brilliant pink with an orange glow, and are borne in enormous clusters. They discolor badly with age, but in well-kept gardens the faded blooms are cut off at all times, so that doesn't matter. It is my choice of the light-pink Polyanthas for low masses.
Book  (1926)  Page(s) 56.  
'La Marne' (Barbier & Co., 1915): clear light pink with a white centre, cupped, and very long-lasting. The clusters are so diffuse that it does not make the mass effect of Chatillon - neither is it so ugly when it begins to fade.

Chatillon Rose (Poly) (A. Nonin) The most beautiful polyantha; it gives enormous thyrses of semi-double flowers, large, and long keeping. 4/- each.
