Introduced in France by Francis Dubreuil in 1904
This is a very good rose, healthy and vigorous, whose slender dark green leaves contrast nicely with the crimson new growth. The canes have a graceful way of cascading, or drooping, making it good for flowing down over a terrace wall. The blooms are a luscious apricot butterscotch and nearly continuous. This plant takes awhile to establish itself and can be a slow grower. Be patient and try not to move it. This is not a rose for shade. I have heard that it grows successfully in Zone 6.
