Modern Roses 12 shows this registered as 'Baronne Henriette de Snoy' with an exhibition name of Baronne Henriette de Snoy.

The breeder named it 'Baronne Henriette Snoy'. I'm not sure how the 'de' crept into the name - it has been suggested that it was originally a simple copyist's typo - 'Baronne Henriette de Loew' often appearing just before 'Baronne Henriette Snoy' in early lists. The mistake has been perpetuated in many books and nursery lists and garden labels.
Strictly speaking, 'Baronne Henriette de Snoy' is an incorrect name, but its use is so widespread it has become a synonym.
I hope Modern Roses will include the original name in future editions.

I planted this rose in March of 2006 in Orange County California.  It grows big, great foliage here, blooms a lot, a wonderful rose.  The blooms on the plant here do not nod, and are superb in a vase.  They are also large, and, to my nose, fragrant.  I would highly recommend this rose to anyone in a climate that would allow it, and with plenty of room.
