This beautiful rose is the evident result of Mons. Lacharme’s attempt to breed a pure white rose. He didn’t quite succeed with 'Coquette des Blanches', but he did achieve near perfection. The form of the flower is at once both cupped and flat. Flat, referring to the line that can be drawn across the surface of the bloom, and cupped, being the description of the overall bloom shape. While not completely white, the overall effect in the garden is of a white rose. Yet for many it is the pink tones of the inner petals on a newly opening bloom that give this rose its greatest beauty. The shrub itself is hardy and vigorous with slender canes that suggest the rose can be grown as a pillar or a pegged rose.
