Colette Tremblay, in Canada, says she purchased this rose under its synonym 'Canicule'. She says it is low, free-flowering, yellow semi-double blooms, and glossy foliage. It lacks a strong fragrance and the yellow color can fade in the sun.


Pépinières Loubert's 2002 Catalogue lists this rose as a Floribunda with a date of circa 1980.

Long Flowering season.
