Notes:
The current 'Aimable rouge' in gardens and commerce does not conform to early descriptions, which are of a pink rose with whitish edges, only red in bud form.
The identification by Gerda Nissen in 1979 of a found rose based on the comparison with a plant in a nursery in Denmark is incorrect. 'Aimable Rouge' in commerce and gardens is red. Fran├žois Joyaux believes this might be a rose by Vibert from 1819. However, Hardy equates in 1837 Vibert's 'Aimable Rouge' with 'Boule d'hortensia' / Agatha majestueuse etc. which were again light pink.

In September 1998, the Montreal Botanical Garden (Le Jardin Botanique de Montreal) carried out a survey of its roses' resistance to black spot, powdery mildew and rust. This is one of the outstanding varieties which showed a 0% to 5% infection rate. The data was taken on well-established roses.
