A Hybrid Perpetual that derives its flat flowers from Gallica ancestors... a family always prone to throw sports. Probably that is why, only three years after its introduction, 'Baronne Prevost' threw a striped sport, 'Panachee d'Orleans'.

Hybrid Perpetual Roses
Baronne Prevost (1842)
This variety is excellent for the rose show because the long bloom stem is usually topped by a quartet of buds, the center bud opening into a magnificent light rosy pink, very large, flat bloom. The form is outstanding and the bloom very double. The bush growth is compact with large foliage. If you are an exhibitor, this one is for you.
