In September 1998, the Montreal Botanical Garden (Le Jardin Botanique de Montreal) carried out a survey of its roses' resistance to black spot, powdery mildew and rust. This is one of the outstanding varieties which showed a 0% to 5% infection rate. The data was taken on well-established roses.
One of the Roses that "passed the test" in Longwood Garden's Ten-Year Rose Trials.

The very popular novel "Hajji Baba of Ispahan" by James Justinian Morier was first published 1824.
