And as for the reference in 1926: Rosensorten- und Preisliste Marie Henriette Chotek Rosenschulen...
I wouldn't call the foliage glossy at all, but matte like nettles! Of a light olive green and feels like sandpaper.

The 2 early references mention glossy foliage. It could be that today's 'Heinrich Conrad Söth' is mislabeled.

That would be a pity... but still a wonderful rose!
The other characteristics match: The most magnificent bloomer, blooms at the end of the canes in large pyramidal bouquets. Single, bright deep pink with white eye. Magnificent ornamental, good autumn bloom, long stems, upright, 1-2 m., hardy. Rugose leaves.

When I look at the photo of Vladimír Ježovič:
The leaves and stipules look the same as those of my specimen, except for glossiness.

The sandpaper-feeling is caused by the underside of the leaves. I checked a moment ago.
Mozart at my place has glossier foliage. Although the leaves are smaller than those of Heinrich Conrad Söth.

In my opinion, this rose repeats flowering... not constantly/perpetual.(at least in our garden)

Hello Jay-Jay,
Perhaps when the bush is new and has all that lovely new wood, that it is continuous-flowering. See older comments.

I wrote those older comments myself in earlier stage of the plant.
Than it may have flowered continuously, but in very small sprays and not that abundant/awesome/impressive as this year.

This year, it had lots of fresh wood, due to pruning and it flowered like mad for 6 weeks in a row.
Than for some time there fell no rain and I didn't water at all... no new buds, no roses and no new growth. The plant stayed green and didn't loose leaves. I cut of the sprays of beginning hips to encourage flowering and new growth.
It has been raining now and then the past weeks, I'll see what the effect will be. And report than in case I don't forget!(I'm getting older You know)

This rose grows easily from cuttings taken at the end of fall or winter. Dug them up in spring and most of them took off.
Even taken in spring with a little bit of foliage and under (plastic) moist conditions the cuttings succeeded for 75%.

Although our drive-way is flanked by large-flowered climbers... people are stunned by this rose and speak to me about it, how it appeals to them.
