'Albéric Barbier ' often freezes to the ground in Europe in Zone 6b. I see that your garden is even in 4b. How does AB survive for you?

According to literature, 'Mme Souchet' should have lacquer-red edges. the photo fits 'Césarine Souchet' better.

Thank you for your message. I imported that plant from Ashdown 3 years ago and other pictures I saw of it are very similar which never make me dought I had the right plant.

We will inform Ashdown to look again at their identification.

jedmar, I just went back to the pictures posted for Madame Souchet and my pictures and those of the others are the same. Did you the same remark to the other person?

I also went back to the Ashdown site and what they show and what I have is the same. The tint might be lighter du to the sun exposure but the description is the same.

Where did you read different?

Yes, I made the remark to another also. If you read the "References" section on 'Mme Souchet' and 'Césarine Souchet' here in HMF you can see the differences. The former is described as pale pink with lacquer-red edges, the latter as pale pink only. A mix-up in name where A "Madame" gets added or replaces at "Mademoiselle", even a "Monsieur" is not unusual. It is quite possible that Ashdown first acquired their rose from a public garden as 'Madame Souchet'. Unfortunately, there are many labeling errors even in the most famous rosaries. Here I was just pointing out the discrepancy between the pictures and the description.
