Rosa ‘Liesis’

Noisette rose.  Its flowers are pale yellow with deeper centres, large and full, form cupped, very hardy and, according to William Paul, writing in The Gardeners’ Chronicle, useful for a weeper, wall or greenhouse.  He considered it one of the best roses.  Rivers described it as a bright yellow Noisette Rose quite worthy of culture.  [Paul (1863, 1888), Rivers (1863), Gard. Chron. p.461/1863].

Horticultural & Botanical History

No additional data.

History at Camden Park

Included in a handwritten list of roses dated 1861, probably intended for a new edition of the catalogue that was never printed.  [MP A2943].

Notes

The handwriting is difficult to read but it is possibly ‘Liesis’. Another possibility is ‘Linaris’, listed in a notebook belonging to William Macarthur about 1863.  ‘Celine Forestier’ was also listed in this notebook.
