La variété Blanche Laffitte....a les fleurs quelquefois en corymbe, moyennes ou petites, pleines et d'un blanc légèrement carné; et, suivant la classification qu'elle dans les catalogues des rosiéristes en renom, elle serait une variété presque semi-sarmenteuse du rosier de l'Ile Bourbon, mise au commerce par M. Pradel en 1851.
....Mais en présence de contradictions aussi grandes entre rosiéristes éminents au sujet du classement e cette dernière rose, et sans douter d'aucunbe façon des connaissances rosicoles de notre collègue lyonnais, nous avons voulu cependant juger par nous-même ed de visu, nos souvenirs étant un peu confus sur la valeur des caractères spécifiques de Blanche Laffitte. Mais,
L'examen achevé, il faut que l'on opine,
Et pour fixer l'espèce que l'on se détermine;
Qu'on dise son avis d'une façon bien nette,
Si la Blanche Laffitte est Bourbon ou Noisette.

Nous n'avons pas eu à hésiter, les marques caractéristiques sont assez tranchées dans cette plante pour que, du premier coup d'oeil, on reconnaisse en elle un Noisette à peu près pur.

Approximate translation
The variety Blanche Laffitte has flowers sometimes in high corymbs, medium or small, full and of a slightly meaty white; and, according to the classification it contains in the catalogs of the renowned rose growers, it would be an almost semi-sarmentous variety of the Bourbon Island rose, put on the market by M. Pradel in 1851.
.... But in the presence of such great contradictions between prominent rosierists about the classification of this last rose, and without doubting any way about the rosy knowledge of our colleague from Lyon, we wanted however to judge for ourselves ed visu , our memories being a little confused about the value of the specific characters of Blanche Laffitte. But,
The examination completed, we must opine,
And to fix the species that is determined;
Let's say his opinion in a clear way,
If Blanche Laffitte is Bourbon or Noisette.
We did not have to hesitate, the characteristic marks are quite sliced ​​in this plant so that, at first glance, we recognize in it a noisette almost pure.
