Notes:
Because of the confusion surrounding 'Président de Sèze' and 'Jenny Duval', we had put references to both under the same listing, and figured we'd leave it to intrepid rose sleuths to sort it all out for themselves. There now seems to be no doubt that they are two different roses, so we are in the process of assigning References to the appropriate rose. Please refer to the pages of both roses for more information.


For what it's worth, The Peter Beales Collection of Classic Roses 2000-2001 says 'Président de Sèze' and 'Jenny Duval' are synonymous and they offer this rose as 'Président de Sèze'...


'Madame Hébert' as a synonym for 'Président de Séze' is historically incorrect, and is based on a recent misunderstanding of the name of the breeder as that of the rose.
