Pépinières Loubert says the breeder is Dumont de Courcet and assigns a date of 1802. Possibly this refers only to the first mention in Dumont de Courset's books. According to Prévost, Vibert called this rose 'Belle Thérèse'. This does not mean that he was the breeder. Hardy states in his 1837 catalogue that he is the breeder.
[Sangerhausen says the breeder is Courset, Dumont of 1802, and describes the color of the blossom as whitish-pink.]
