Commenting further on Bonita’s photo of ‘Chromatella’ grown at Highfields, Queensland.
Bonita, I am struck by tha deep yellow at the base of the bud and the green pedicels. Other photos show some red on the bud and reddish pedicels. These traits may be a result of your growing conditions, but can you tell us more about the rose please, including its provenance?

I think I purchased it in 2003/2004 from Perrotts Nursery in Brisbane.

Thanks for that Bonbon. Your last photo was such a deep yellow that I thought it might be 'Duchesse d'Auerstädt‘, but I see you also have that rose as well. Have you ever seen your ‘Chromatella show any violet-purple new canes?

Our best hardy climbing roses are Marechal Niel; Cloth of Gold (the true one, most of them now a-days, are only the Solfaterre, or the still later Augusta). I saw Cloth of Gold and Solfaterre large outdoor plants, in fully bloom side by side here in 1849, they had come from Buist two years previous; there is no comparison in the bloom, though the wood, growth, and habit are the same. I then discarded Solfaterre for good. Reine Marie Henriette; Imperatrice Eugenie; Estelle Pradel; Celine Forestier; Perle de Lyon; Gloire de Dijon; Cherokee; Margueretta, Jeanne d' Arc, Triomphe de la Duchesse; Woodland Marguerite; W. A. Richardson; Madame Deslongchamps.

Rose Noisette Drap d'Or, Chromatella, and Cloth of Gold are one and the same. A Herts Rose grower purchased a lot from Vibert, and described it under the name of Cloth of Gold, a fair translation of Drap d'Or. M. Vibert sold it afterwards as Chromatella. I think Mdlle. Amie Vibert (if living) must be able to give the genuine history of the Rose. My impression is that Solfatere, Cloth of Gold, and Nois. Ophir were grown from the same hip. R. R.

"Drap d'Or" = "Cloth of Gold".

» J'ai maintenant à parler des roses non pas précisément jaunes, mais jaunâtres, formant une série fort nombreuse. Les rosiers de cette série appartiennent aux rosiers thé et noisette (rosa indica des botanistes); mais il est assez difficile de dire avec précision où cette série commence et où elle finit. En ne prenant que les plus jaunes, nous aurons parmi les roses thé, Abricot, Aurore, Cléopâtre, Dèvonienne, Éliza Sauvage, Jaune, la Renommée, Admirable, Moiret, Pellonia, Princesse-Adélaïde, Safran, Jaune de Smith et Vicomtesse-Decazes. Parmi les roses noisette, nous aurons Clara-Wendel, *Drap-d'Or*, Desprez, Euphrosine, Lamarque, le Pactole et la Solfatare; toutes ces roses se rapprochent plus ou moins des caractères des roses thé.
