Patricia, may I ask if this is the same rose that came to you as "Vestey's Pink Tea" that you made comment on in the 'Anne Leygues' file?

Yes. The two roses are the same. The photo is of the first listed here:
‘General Schablikine’ (provenance Peta Townsing in 1996, came as ‘General Schablikine’ GS-O-NW-ne.
‘General Schablikine’ (provenance Noelene Drage, gazebo lower in 2000, came as “Vestey’s Pink Tea” Plot-mid-w-9

Thank you, Patricia. It's good to know that someone is still growing a documented specimen of the "Vestey's Pink" version of 'General Schablikine'.
I was looking closely at your photo and the branch structure and relative lack of thorniness corresponds to my "Vestey's Pink".

A pleasure. Keeping the provenance and date of aquisition is a!ways recommended, as is showing these details in photo captions. it can solve many identity problems.

This rose is not " blanc saumoné à l'intérieur et d'un rose saumoné à l'extérieur" as described in Journal des Roses 1881.

The rose at L'Haÿ is different from the one of Angel Gardens - but both are not 'Mme Jules Grévy'!

I have just posted two more pictures today. The bush stands about 1:2 metres tall and the new water shoots are very prickly. Sometimes the stripes are more deep navy blue in colour and other times black. I have had three plants grafted to ensure it is spread around. Two plants will be going to Brisbane next week. I am fascinated by this pretty rose.
