Cécile Brünner ('The Sweetheart Rose', 'Mignon', 'Mademoiselle (or Madame) Cécile Brünner'). China. Parentage: Unnamed Polyantha Rose x 'Souvenir d'un Ami' or 'Madame de Tartas'. Joseph Pernet-Ducher 1881 (bred by his mother-in-law). Description... fragrant little blush-pink flowers... there are two roses that have this name: Ducher's original, a petite bush less than a metre (3 feet) tall, with its flowers in small clusters; and an interloper (which used to be called 'Bloomfield Abundance'), virtually identical in leaf and flowers but growing four times the size... Look carefully at the buds to see which version you have (or are getting): the 'spray-bearing' type often extends one of its sepals out like a green flag beyond the petals, the original one never does...

Cécile Brunner’/’Mignon’/’Mme Cécile Brunner’/’The Sweetheart Rose’ = Thé-Polyantha. Non pas syn de ‘Sweetheart’, un rosier sarmenteux… Obtenu par Vve Ducher, introduit par Pernet-Ducher en 1881… petites feuilles luisantes et très peu d’aiguillons. Les pousses latérales sur le bois ancien donne chacune une fleur, les pousses vigoureuses de l’année portent des sortes de capitules comportant jusqu’à 12 fleurs: ce ne sont pas là les extraordinaires panicules de ‘Bloomfield Abundance’. Et il n’y a pas de lobes foliacés du calice allongés sous les fleurs comme chez ‘Bloomfield Abundance’… boutons de forme idéale allongée… rose pâle argenté, un peu plus chaud au centre, ne présentant pas, comme chez ‘B.A.’ une certaine irrégularité, elles sont parfaites… Malheureusement, ‘Cécile Brunner’ ne convient pas aux régions plus froides que la région parisienne au sens large.
