This rose is drought tolerant. It almost died in wet clay during spring flood, and I had to move it UP HILL to dry & loamy soil. Very healthy & tall & vigorous on August 26 as 3rd-year OWN-ROOT. The second flush in July gave 1/5 the amount of blooms as the spring flush. Will report back if it gives bloom in late fall for 3rd flush.

It would be hard to say that any other rose is more fragrant - which combined with the colour and form make it very easy to forgive the not-so-great disease resistance, still worthy of a place in my garden. The fragrance is just magnificent.

I came across this informative blogpost about the real Mme. Isaac PĂ©reire, when I was doing a genealogy search (my husband's related). It was a such a fun read, I thought I'd share: http://the-history-girls.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-names-of-ladies-of-roses-by-louisa.html

Madame is quite hardy in southern Finland, her health is good and growth vigorous. Should be more widely available.
