The Noisette Rose from Boehm

A Bit of History about the Noisette Rose…

The Noisette Rose was cultivated just after 1800 when John Champneys of Charleston, crossed a pink China rose with the Musk Rose and obtained a large-growing shrub with clusters of lightly fragrant pink blossoms, 'Champneys' Pink Cluster'. A neighbor there, Philippe Noisette, planted its seeds and grew a plant which was similar but dwarfer, and which had larger clusters of double flowers, 'Blush Noisette'. Philippe Noisette's brother happened to be a major French nurseryman in Paris, and it was through this latter that the rose found commercial release around 1815.
