Vienna Charm HT. (R. Kordes) This rose has been a continual source of delight to us, and we consider it a pearl beyond price. In the first place the colour is most appealing, being coppery buff to old gold, very rare in any rose. The flowers are very large, being fully 6 inches across when full blown, and having 20-25 broad firm petals which have a silky sheen to them. Above all, this rose grows, and presents these magnificent coloured blooms repeatedly right through the season. Never a bad bloom either. Visitors to our gardens are all in agreement with us that this rose is easily the most wonderful surprise of the year. We can only think the parents must have reformed somewhat from when we last knew them. ('Goldene Sonne' x 'Chantre').

Vienna Charm.HT. (Kordes, 1963) 'Goldene Sonne' x 'Chantre'. About thirty big petals make up a large, shapely bloom which lasts well. The unique, old-gold colouring is most attractive. Little if any perfume. Vertical grower and not particularly strong.
