Fellemberg Noisette. Fellemberg (France) 1857. ('La Belle Marseillaise'). Sometimes classed as a China Rose, this rather obscure but well-known rose is, according to Miss Willmott, a hybrid between Rosa chinensis and R. multiflora. I think this is doubtful, for it would not then be recurrent. It does, however, conform reasonably closely to the larger-growing China Roses and the ‘Blush Noisette’, and thus I place it here. It is far removed from the dwarf original Chinas. ‘Fellemberg’ makes a large, open, angular-branching bush up to 8 feet high and wide on any soil. It takes some time to build itself up, and is never dense. The young shoots are of glaucous green or purplish and bear reddish prickles; the young leaves have much the same colour, maturing to dark green, and are small and pointed. Small and large clusters of flowers appear, emerging from crimson buds and opening to rich warm pink or light lilac-crimson, fading to lighter pink as they age, semi-double, cupped, showing stamens, with sweet-pea fragrance. Sometimes the central petals remain balled, some are quilled, and the flowers seldom exceed 2 inches in width. It is one of the few shrubby roses to have been given the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society, an honour it richly deserves, for flowers are produced so long as the weather is mild, right into the autumn..... Alternatively, it is a constant flowerer if pruned as a bedding rose, achieving about 3 feet annually.
