Calvert is a misunderstanding in the translation of the "Manuel" of Boitard: It is not a synonym of 'Globe blanc', but means this name was used in the nursery of Calvert, as was 'Boule de Neige' by Vibert; both for 'Glope Hip' of Lee.
'Rosa centifolia Leea' or 'Lee's' which has been used only in Germanic countries has been added as a possible synonym to 'Boule de Neige'.
