Also known as ‘Monsieur Pélisson’. A lovely Moss rose typical of its period of breeding, with fully double, fluffy pink blooms that have an excellent fragrance. The foliage is smallish and somewhat coarse, like most of the smaller Centifolia Mosses. Each bloom is no more than three inches in diameter, borne in clusters and occasionally one-to-a-stem… Well worth a place in any serious collection of Moss Roses.
