Mme. de Sancy de Parabere. Boursault. ‘Virginian Lass’. It is a matter of taste whether you include the first ‘de’ in this rose’s full title, and a matter of dispute whether she was raised by the Nantes firm of A. Bonnet & Fils in 1874 or earlier. It is beyond dispute, however, that this is a most unusual rose. A shrubby Climber, it is one of the earliest roses to bloom, covering itself with large flowers in clear pink, against glossy olive-green foliage. Their form is unique; within a circle of large outer petals nestles a bunch of smaller ones, in what is known as an ‘anemone centre’. It is a common sight among camellias, but not among roses. Alas, there is little scent, and the display is once a year only. There are no thorns. Parentage unknown. Summer flowering.
