'Cornélie' seems to have been a bright pink Noisette, while 'Belle Vichysoise' of commerce today is definitely not bright pink. Roseraie Ducher offers both 'Cornélie' (bright pink) and 'Belle Vichysoise' (pale pink and white):

I can only assume that the comparison that was made when it was determined these roses were the same involved a mis-labeled plant. They look nothing alike. Accordingly, the 1899 and 1906 editions of Nomenclature de tous les noms... give them separate entries, histories and descriptions: 'Cornélie' is rose vif, while 'Belle Vichysoise' is blanc rosé.

It does seem that HMF ought to look at the synonymity of these two roses with more skepticism; I think they deserve separate records.

Anybody can tell how thorny it is?
I need to place it in a thorn free (or almost free) area.
Thank you for your advice.

I adore this rose. The fragrance is delectable, it blooms prolifically, and is just so pretty. I haven't had it for long--only about 2 years, but it's never gotten any blackspot or powdery mildew. I have it planted in a tall raised stone bed and it's just starting to cascade over the wall. I'm in love.

Would you mind telling me how large your plant is now, height and diameter? Do you prune it?

Thank you in advance,
