W. C. Thorn. What's In A Name. It was Harry Wheatcroft who chose the most scented pink rose of the year at Meilland's for dedication to the Princess Grace of Monaco, thus tying together the realization of a wondrous fairy-tale with the most romantic of all flowers. But it very nearly didn't happen quite like that. This rose was growing in one of the few greenhouses which was not utterly destroyed in the terrific snowfall of February 1956 on the French Riviera. It was saved by the diligent breaking of the glass by Alain Meilland during the night of the storm.
