Does anyone else find it very surprising and interesting that this rose seems (according to the lineage tab) to be able to semi-regularly produce repeat flowering offspring?

These first generation offspring of 'Maiden's Blush' are mostly recent cultivars. The question is then whether it was really the true 'Maiden's Blush' which was used. I have heard discussions that in Germany there has been some confusion with 'Duchesse de Montebello'.

Good point! I too have heard that there is some confusion about 'Small Maiden's Blush' and 'Duchesse de Montebello', and whether they are one and the same in some places.

Having said that, I see that Alba Maxima is also listed as having been the pollen parent of a rose which does some repeating, so who knows!

Our 'Maiden's Blush' listing is for both Great and Small Maiden's Blush, as apparently no one can really with certainty tell them apart and there are question marks whether the latter still exists.

Great maiden blush is a rose that attracts cetonias (Oxythyrea funesta)

Is the rose susceptible to mildew?

It is certainly susceptible to rust.

I never saw any mildew on any of my albas when I had them in CA. In NY, zone 5, they get some BS on the bottom leaves in late summer and fall. The rabbits do more damage than disease.

Ok thanks
if i understand
the rose is not really healthy but nothing to worry.

In my location which is cool with high rain fall alba roses grow well, 'Cuisse de Nymphe', 'Alba Maxima' and 'Kronigin von Danemark' make large, healthy and long lived plants. However in hotter and drier climates they suffer from rust.
