Today for the first time, I heard it suggested (by Jill Perry, whose opinion I value highly) that the found rose "Pulich Children" is actually 'Mons. Boncenne'. Has anyone grown them side-by-side and what do you think?

As you saw on the "Pulich Children" file, I posited this a few years ago, but someone (can't remember who) said they were different. One thing to consider is that 'Baron de Bonstetten' is very similar to 'Monsieur Boncenne', so if "Pulich Children" has been matched with 'Monsieur Boncenne', was it also compared to 'Baron de Bonstetten'? Doesn't the SJHRG have all three there now?

I have compared my 'M. Boncenne' to "Pulich Children' and they do not seem to be the same rose. The habit of the bush and the flower form of 'M. Boncenne' strike me as rather different from that of "Pulich". My 'Boncenne' is much more upright and un-arching. As for color, mine is maroon--though I confess Jeri Jennings' photos of "Pulich" flowers do look similar to mine.

Vintage Gardens stated that 'Monsieur Boncenne' and 'Baron de Bonstetten' have been mixed up in commerce. I've never seen the latter, but perhaps if someone grew them both, with "Pulich Children" nearby, we could see if PC matches either of them. I think the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden has all three, so maybe we'll find out soon.
