'Alain' rose References
Book  (Feb 2009)  Page(s) 158.  
 
‘Alain’: Polyantha. Parents: (‘Guinée’ x ‘Wilhelm’) x ‘Orange Triumph’. Obtenteur: Meilland 1946. Voici un rosier qui a connu une grande réussite du fait de la taille de ses fleurs, qui, à l’époque de sa création, dépassait celles des autres Polyantha. On le trouve encore dans plusieurs catalogues, en raison de sa belle couleur rouge carmin et de la générosité de sa floraison, en bouquets de 20 à 30 fleurs… La remontée est bonne, si l’on prend soin de supprimer les fleurs fanées. Cette variété résiste bien au froid.
