See also the HP (1864) of the same name. "Rosenlexikon" lists two mossy perpetuals 'Mme. Louis Lévêque' from 1898 and 1903. In 1936, the 1903 version was listed as existing at Sangerhausen, while the 2005 catalogue dates this rose to 1898.

Mme. Louis Lévêque and Mme. Edouard Ory are possibly identical in USA commerce.
