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].




There is also a Noisette rose of this name with clusters of crimson flowers but William Macarthur includes his ‘Luxemburg’ among the Moss roses.
