We found from Pat Stemler-Wiley’s slide of ‘Celine Forestier’ that Deane Ross, Walter Duncan and I have been growing, ‘Celine Forestier’ and ‘Desprez a Fleurs Jaunes’ for years thinking that both varieties were very similar. Well they are both ‘Celine Forestier’ and we have to re-import Desprez again. They came out originally wrongly labelled and we have been fooled for all those years.
......Peter [Beales] also described the difference between the Noisettes ‘Celine Forestier’ and ‘Desprez a Fleurs Jaunes’.

Celine Forestier was released by Trouillard in 1842 and is one of the most exquisite of all the old Tea Noisettes. Tight buds borne singly or in small clusters open to exquisite double creamy pale gold quartered blooms with button eye and an intense and delicious spicy Tea fragrance. It is vey remontant once established which it does surely but slowly to eventually become a vigorous and tough climber. It is said to have arisen from a cross between ‘Lamarque’ and ‘Desprez a Fleur Jaune’.
