Rosa ‘La Tourterelle’

A Hybrid China rose.  It was described as a Hybrid Bengal rose by Gore under the name ‘Parny’, its flowers middle-sized, regular, full, of a light uniform lilac.  Paul described its flowers as rose and dove-coloured, shaded with slate, cupped, large and full, on a vigorous shrub with a branching habit.  [Paul (1848)].  Thomas Rivers, writing in the Floricultural Cabinet, described ‘La Tourterelle’ in similar terms.  [FC p.241/1835].
