Is not Bobino a synonym for Voyage [Tantau, 2013]?

This rose is named '... de Santiago', NOT '... del Santiago'. Check Michel Adam's website, if you wish, but please change your listing.

This cv was introduced in France as Cyrano de Bergerac NOT as Full Moon Rising. Could you please correct the record?

I suspect that all the plants of this cultivar now in existence trace back to the plants at Europa-Rosarium, Sangerhausen. The colouring of the individual flowers is very variable, but I have no reason to doubt that both pictures uploaded to HMF are correctly named. We tend to describe colours rather loosely, and the roses that are marked as 'golden yellow' are often rather more yellow than golden. The colour of 'Fürst Bismarck' is very similar to that of 'Gloire de Dijon', and just as variable. Incidentally, I believe that 'Fürst Bismarck' is a selfed seedling of 'Gloire de Dijon' (there is a record of it being crossed with 'Comtesse d'Oxford') and not, as some German authorities (e.g. Jäger) maintain, either a sport of 'Gloire de Dijon' or a synonym for 'Belle Lyonnaise'.

Charles, I note ‘Furstin Bismarck’ the pink 1888 rose was (Gloire de Dijon x Comtesse d’Oxford)
I feel that ‘Furst Bismarck’ the yellow(-ish)1888 rose, coming from the same breeder in the same year, was also of that same parentage. I agree that it is less likely that it was a sport.
