p39. Gregg Lowery. "Fewell's Noisette". Found in South Carolina, USA by Ruth Knopf. Discovered by Ruth Knopf in a cemetery in Rock Hill, South Carolina, "Fewell's Noisette" is a very dense grower with upright canes and dense panicles of bloom. The clean white 1-inch flowers are barely touched with pink, neat and small, rounded in outline with a tidy form, softened by a few central petaloids that curl inward. The petals are long and pointed, making a charming packet of ribbons tied in a bow. The plant is compact and stays to about 4 feet in full sun.

Ruth Knopf. Rediscovering the Old Noisettes.
Over a period of time, I found many of the old Noisettes. One was "Fewell's Noisette", which I came across in an old cemetery in upstate South Carolina. It was growing on the grave of a Mr. Fewell, a soldier with a Confederate marker on his grave. The rose looked much like 'Champneys' Pink Cluster', yet it is not quite the same. Today "Fewell's Noisette" is in commerce for all to grow and enjoy, but sadly is no longer to be found in the cemetery.

Rev. Douglas T. Seidel, Pennsylvania. Those fabulous Foundlings: the No-Name Noisettes.
....The blooms on three varieties, "Lingo", "Fewell's Noisette", and "Haynesville Pink Cluster" are practically identical: semi-double ivory or palest blush with two or three rows of petals, like faint editions of 'Champneys' Pink Cluster'. "Lingo"was found by a collector of that name in the late 1960s in north Florida and shared with the late Joseph F. Kern Nursery in Mentor, Ohio. The four foot plant was such a willing bloomer that Mr. Kern put it on the market for the next few years as the Charleston-raised 'Frazer's Pink Musk'. "Fewell's Noisette and the "Haynesville" rose carry the same type of flower on climbing plants that will reach ten feet in my locale. "Fewell's" may have an edge over the others with huge clusters of buds and nice foliations on the sepals.
