CHATEAU ELEONORE, CANNES.
London : JOHN & E. BUMPUS, LTD. 1898.
Tea — Nabonnand, 1886.
Flesh-coloured flowers of great size, slightly margined with a darker shade ;
buds are egg-shaped, very large and heavy, easily affected by damp ; vigorous,
grows to large size and very floriferous, a really magnificent rose, but very
difficult to obtain from it perfect flowers; the plant seems unequal to the task
of opening these great fleshy buds, which cannot withstand much moisture
or a too fierce sun. Rose bugs and other insects especially fond of this
variety. A splendid thing when obtained in perfection, which is so seldom
that it cannot rank among really desirable roses.
Tea — Nabonnand,1877.
Bright flesh colour, splashed with coppery rose, medium size, full, perfect
form, dislikes cold, fine foliage, beautifully coloured in early spring. According
to the weather this rose varies much in colour. Good growth, stiff wood, fine
foliage which takes a beautiful colour in early spring.
