Page 50: (Description) 1826. It has a perfection of form almost unequalled, and may be ranked with 'Mme. Hardy', 'Duc de Guiche', and a few others, to show what the hybridizers of that day considered superlatively beautiful… foliage: dark blue-grey… flower: an intensity of vivid carmine unequalled by any other old rose, opening to a pale pink, often beautifully quartered with a button centre … growth: thought healthy and vigorous up to 6 feet or so, is somewhat open and spindly; wall culture would undoubtedly help.
