Mignonette (Guillot fils, 1881), Seedling of a seedling of R. multiflora 'Polyantha'; the immediate parent is probably the 'Polyantha Alba Plena Sarmentosa' one sees to have been much used in breeding in Lyon, though unreleased. [Author cites information from different sources and, in particular, an interesting entry from the breeder..] ...From these seedlings, I further got many varieties equally dwarf and very remontant...with soft pink flowers which were full and well-formed though small [this, presumably, is 'Mignonette']; I am going to propagate a quantity sufficient to deliver them into commerce in November 1880...

in 1879 the second Polyantha came from the widow Rambaud of Lyon; it was white, 'Anna-Maria de Montravel';
in 1880 Guillot introduced 'Mignonette', the first to show some pink with the white in its double flowers. It is presumably of similar parentage as 'Paquerette'.
