Thank you for this information. We have added 'Shonan Fantasy' too. For breeding year we use the earliest known dates, not the introduction. Could 'Creamy Mimi' be the same as 'White Mimi Rose' in our database? This rose starts off cream and the ages to white.

The link "Bridal Fantasy breeding year" in the Notes shows that there is further information by Kanagawa Prefecture on rose bred there. Unfortunately, we cannot speak Japanese in order to be able to browse through this information.

Alas, another good story (like Ghislaine de Feligonde's) appears to be apocryphal. I was told it was named for the wife of a boring physics lecturer, whose students used to attend his lectures in the hope of being introduced to his beautiful Spanish wife.
But from the description page: dedicated by the breeder to Emma Allgeier (1859-1941), the wife of Gregor Staechelin (1851-1929), a builder, contractor and financier in Basel, Switzerland since 1870.

Well, maybe he was an extremely boring builder, contractor and financier...and people only came to dinner to be around his beautiful and witty wife! hence the rose being named after her, and not him. :P

I had read that Mme Gregoire Staechelin was the beautiful wife of the Swiss ambassador in Spain. Unfortunately research did not find any clue in this direction. The Swiss ambassador 1925-1932 was named Maxime de Stoutz. Gregor Staechelin was "just" a very rich patrician in Basel, also a political figure. His son Rudolf Staechelin (1881-1946) is famous for having been one of the foremost art collectors of Switzerland (Impressionists, Picasso and the like). He bought several Picassos during 1917-1923. This is the closest I came to the rose breeder Pere Dot. In 1926 Mme Gregoire Staechelin was a refined old lady (there is aphoto in a biography), not a fiery Spanish beauty. I think the rose was dedicated to her against a payment to the Breeder.

I've found that it's quite fertile with artificial pollination, and that there's a better than average germination rate. Lots of insipid colours though and thin petals on any seedlings.
