POULSEN's Nursery
[From Value for Money, by Lt. Col. Ken Grapes, 2001, p. 113:] Around 1914, Dines handed over the rose breeding to his younger brother, Svend... [Svend Poulsen's] last rose was introduced in 1958. It was the bright red and yellow 'Rumba'... Svend died in 1974... Svend's son Niels carried on... [and] was awarded the RNRS Deam Hole Medal in 1994.

Rose hybridising in Denmark has been practised on a professional scale only by my family. My uncle Dines Poulsen started in 1910 when he came back to Denmark from France and England. My father, Dr. h.c. Svend Poulsen took it over in 1918 and now I am in it up to my neck.

[From A Celebration of Old Roses, by Trevor Griffiths, 1990, p. 131:] Poulsens of Denmark [Poulsen Rosenplanteskole] was founded in 1878 and introduced its first roses in 1912...

Pernille Olesen (Poulsen) [and] her husband, Mogens, is now the proprietor of this world-famous nursery.
