Kombacy Marie Anne (Aus) Almost certainly Mme de Watteville
Mme. de Watteville (Fineschi) This is the correct clone collected from the Fineschi gardens in Cavriglia. Franziska Kruger is often sold under this name and is incorrect. We grow “Kombacy Marie Anne” from Australia close to our Mme. De Watteville and they appear identical

Roses sold here as Mme de Watteville have proved to be either Mme Joseph Schwartz or Etoile de Lyon.
p50. Caption: Some people in Europe who grow our “Kombacy Marianne” (above right) say it matches the Mme. De Watteville in the great Fineschi garden in Italy.

IN THE GARDEN. New Year Roses. [...] OLD MME. DE WATTEVILLE. Very few of the present-day gardeners know this old-time pink with a picotee edge of carmine coloring. Why? Because she was cast aside on account of being an easy prey to mildew. It was not Madame herself that was at fault; it was those who were so impatient and so anxious for a change. Only yesterday I cut as pretty a batch of Mme. de Watteville as I have ever handled. Every flower was a gem thing. For years one of my bushes had been overgrown and hidden by a Persian lilac. One day recently I tore away the top-hamper, shortened back the old rose, and turned on the water-tap. Warm sunshine and warm rain won the heart of my old rose-bush, and she flowered as she was wont to do in the days when her name was a household word in every community where roses are grown. It was lovely of her to come back for the New Year. I shall see that no further harm or injury is done to her.
