According to Suschkow, also the sorts 'Contrast', 'Ramon Bach', 'Leni Neuss', 'Kathrine Kordes' and especially 'Staatspräsident Päts' are suitable components for hybridisation, especially the last sort produces as seed plant vigorous shrubs with long, straight canes, which end with a bloom at the tip.

"This rose reminds me of a question we used to ask at school as to why the French master's trousers were like two towns in France. The answer was because they were too loose and too long. The blooms of this rose are too loose and the petals too long, so the whole effect is one of floppiness, unless cut in bud stage. Its form, however, is distinct and decorative but with me it is not free enough to recommend it as a good garden rose." - Rigg (Eng.). Motz (N.Y.) thinks the plant is too weak for so large and handsome a bloom. Bauer (O) rhapsodizes over the marvelous buds and thinks that it will make a great hit with all who grow it. It is a strong grower for Rippon (B.C.), who finds the flower like 'Mrs. Henry Morse' but Kirk (Va.) saw little to recommend it. We have not grown it at Breeze Hill, but we admired it immensely as we saw it growing in nursery fields.

Leni Neuss (HT) (M. Leenders, 1928) E’ indubbiamente una della più belle rose di questi ultimi anni. Cespuglio ben formato, di bel fogliame, è sempre in fiore; i suoi fiori, enormi, pieni, sono d’un rosa ortensia sfumati di rosa pallido e di rosso tegola. Particolarmente bello ed elegante il bottone, sempre solitario.
