Hybrid Perpetuals. Group A, ‘La Reine’ Type.
....The 1901 Congress of Rosarians at Paris discerned a ‘Louise Peyronny’ sub-group which includes those varieties lacking any tint of lilac, which was found endemic, from delicate lilac to deep lilac pink, to the true ‘La Reine’ group. Some of the varieties thus split off to form the ‘Louise Peyronny’ non-lilac subgroup are: ‘Louise Peyronny’, ‘Anna de Diesbach’, ‘Mme. Eugene Verdier’, ‘Mme. Montel’, ‘Mrs. John Laing’, ‘Paul Neyron’.

Page 180: Paul Neyron Hybrid Perpetual. 1869 'Anna de Diesbach' and 'Victor Verdier' ...almost without prickles... deep rose-pink with a dash of lilac, much like 'La Reine' but, point to point, bigger and more handsomely furnished... 'Paul Neyron' chooses to live long in old gardens and is likely to be met with almost anywhere. When you see the biggest rose you ever saw in an old garden, most likely it is 'Paul Neyron'.
