Sangerhausen describes the color of the blooms as whitish-pink.
It is believed that 'Mme Cornelissen' at Sangerhausen (not in the collection in 1936) and L'Haÿ are misnamed and that 'Edith de Murat' at L'Haÿ is the true 'Mme Cornelissen'.
A copy of the rose from the National Plant Collection of Victor Lewis, Braintree, Essex, was planted in Sangerhausen after 2011.
