"Sydney Linton" and 'Rose du Roi' may have something in common. They both have six (or more) sepals [refer 'Rose du Roi' 1829 and 1836 references] and are basically the same colour. However, there seems to be a difference in the receptacle in that 'Rose du Roi' narrows at the top, and "Sydney Linton" widens at the top.

I used to think that "Bishop's Lodge Sydney Linton" was 'Paul Neyron'.
I now think there are differences.
I have put pictures into the Helpmefind pages for "Bishop's Lodge Sydney Linton"
and also 'Paul Neyron'.

The pictures show my two plants, which are in a very tough spot but only two metres apart:
STIPULE. "Sydney Linton" stipule is much wider. 'Paul Neyron's stipule is narrower.
PRICKLES "Sydney Linton" has tiny prickles and glands. 'Paul Neyron' has glands only. But see also The Old Rose Advisor plate 114 which shows tiny prickles!
SEPALS. "Sydney Linton" has shorter sepals, 'Paul Neyron' has long leafy appendages. (However, more time and more blooms are needed to watch if this is typical).
PETALS. The petals and sepals on "Sydney Linton" are often fused, according to James Young and David Ruston in The Joy of Roses book, and see p135 for James' excellent photograph showing this trait. I have not noted this fused petal and sepal on my "Sydney Linton" to date, but have often seen it on my plant of 'Paul Neyron'.

Patricia - have you had a chance to compare 'Paul Neyron' and "BL Sydney Linton" more closely? Are you convinced that they are different, or do you still think there's a chance they're the same?

Could be.

Sorry Billy, too many roses here to stop and carefully look lately.
They are a bit past it and not too much to look at right now but I still see the stipule differences I mentioned in my Jan 27, 2008 posting.
The differences in the tiny prickles and glands is not so evident.
My comment on the different sepals still stands. Have a look at my picture of the leafy sepals of 'Paul Neyron' taken on January 26, 2008
These tiny differences could be the result of different clones, but because mainly the sepal differences, I think 'Paul Neyron' and "Bishop's Lodge Sydney Linton" are two different roses.

One of the early photos of BL Sydney Linton here shows a couple of sepal/petal fusions, so that one's not a differentiating factor. I don't know, either.
