'Cornelia'. Hybrid Musk. One of the best-loved of Joseph Pemberton’s Hybrid Musks, 'Cornelia' is also one of his last, being introduced in 1925. The color of the flowers varies: sometimes soft, peachy pink, at others flushed with coral and much richer in effect. The flowers are small and borne in flattish sprays. They are always very fragrant, with the real scent of musk, and the bush is tall and graceful. With pruning, it can be held to about 1.5 metres (5 feet), but it is flexible enough to train as a short pillar rose. Sometimes the blooms come in enormous clusters, two or three of which would fill the largest vase. Foliage is nicely bronze tinted, glossy and leathery. Parentage unknown. Repeat flowering. Fragrant.
