Giovanni Spotti, as reported in Rivista della ortoflorofrutticoltura italiana, 1911, was " Direttore dello Stabilimento orticolo dei Fratelli Ingegnoli, valente ed appassionatissimo cultore di piante."

Yes, he was head of breeding at that company, being replaced by Ludovico Cazzaniga, who is almost certainly the breeder of this rose.

We've changed the breeder from Ingegnoli Bros to Ludovico Cazzaniga.

Hi galgal! Beautiful shot of Perle D’Or! Do you happen to remember what the fragrance was like? I read everything from “no fragrance” , to “very fragrant “. Was it spicy, by any chance? Thanks, Lisa

It is a light fresh damask! It is not super strong, but there are usually so many blooms, that it does waft in our humidity. It is a very strong fast grower (which I love) and grows upright. It is very drought tolerant & disease free! I planted mine so the sun would shine behind it and it makes the blooms glow. The foliage is a pretty bright green and makes a nice contrast with darker leaved roses. I have her planted under a limbed up pine and she gets part shade. She loves it.

The correct spelling is 'Ricordo ...' etc. I know this seems pedantic but when I tried at first looking it up on hmf I couldn't find it because I was spelling it correctly. I don't know how Jaeger's Rosenlexicon spells it; the GroenlooF site spells it with two "c" and, in consequence, at Sangerhausen the spelling error is repeated (as with all other varieties beginning with Ricordo.
