Bloom of the Day

Perle d'Or, Polyantha
A dwarf China or Poly-pom raised by Veuve Rambaux in Lyon in 1875.  Though usually classed as a China, it is nearer to the Noisettes and is often listed, with it half-sister seedling 'Cecile Brunner' or ' Yellow Ciecile Brunner' among the Polyanthas.  It is also an 'Earth Kind Rose'.
