English translation by Peter Thompson
A Hybrid Perpetual created around 1885 in England by Henry Bennett.
Harmonious flowers of up to 50 petals, pink and scented with a silvery sheen.
It was certainly in fashion in the last years of the Victorian era.
It forms bushy shrubs and is very resistant to disease.
