Gardening 1: 388 (Sept 1, 1893)
Our best hardy climbing roses are Marechal Niel; Cloth of Gold (the true one, most of them now a-days, are only the Solfaterre, or the still later Augusta). I saw Cloth of Gold and Solfaterre large outdoor plants, in fully bloom side by side here in 1849, they had come from Buist two years previous; there is no comparison in the bloom, though the wood, growth, and habit are the same. I then discarded Solfaterre for good. Reine Marie Henriette; Imperatrice Eugenie; Estelle Pradel; Celine Forestier; Perle de Lyon; Gloire de Dijon; Cherokee; Margueretta, Jeanne d' Arc, Triomphe de la Duchesse; Woodland Marguerite; W. A. Richardson; Madame Deslongchamps.

Mon jardin p. 273 (1876)
By Alfred Smee
Les roses noisettes sont très belles, mais elles sont délicates et le mauvais temps les fait tomber. Le *Drap d'or* est une rose exquise, quand toutefois on peut la faire fleurir. Je l'ai planté plusieurs fois dans mon jardin, mais sans aucun succès; je puis faire la même remarque à propos de la variété Miss Gray. D'autres variétés de roses noisettes: Céline Forestier, Lamarque, Lamarque à fleurs jaunes, Rêve d'or, Solfaterre et Triomphe de Rennes sont três belles, mais elles sont si délicates qu'on ne peut se livrer à cette culture que sur une petite échelle.

Rose Noisette Drap d'Or, Chromatella, and Cloth of Gold are one and the same. A Herts Rose grower purchased a lot from Vibert, and described it under the name of Cloth of Gold, a fair translation of Drap d'Or. M. Vibert sold it afterwards as Chromatella. I think Mdlle. Amie Vibert (if living) must be able to give the genuine history of the Rose. My impression is that Solfatere, Cloth of Gold, and Nois. Ophir were grown from the same hip. R. R.
