A random new source. From - The Garden, February 26, 1898, p. 162. "Princess of Wales. This rose is one of the finest of the Teas. The colour is rosy yellow on outside with deep buff-yellow centre. The magnificent outer petals are often prettily marbled with a rosy pink tint. Anyone having a nice warm border under a south wall could not do better than plant some of this Rose in such a spot, or, better still, train it to the wall between climbers. It is sometimes found a difficult Rose to grow, but like Comtesse de Nadaillac it well repays a little extra trouble in its cultivation."

Initial post yesterday by thebig-bear
I'm curious about the given parentage of this rose - is there any reference that specifically states Quatre Saison x Old Blush rather than Old Blush x Quatre Saison? I would have thought just from casually looking at the way that Quatre Saison is fairly reluctant to set seed (in the much differing climes of England - maybe that is different on Reunion?), or at least not with as much readiness or quantity, compared to the ease with which Old Blush can be pollinated, that it was more likely to be the later. I've seen both ways round mentioned in various books, so is it based on any DNA data that I have somehow missed or something? It puzzles me how we "know" when so much of the origin of this rose is lost, or at least hidden, in the mists of time. Can anyone shed any light on it please?

These incorrect names are mentioned in publications and on websites, so we need to list them, as otherwise our members will not be able to find the rose. However, we have moved these two names to "hidden" so that the correct name is the only one visible.
