Duchesse de Nemours
Duchesse de Nemours. Calot. 1856. Lactiflora cultivar. Double type; large. Cupped, white guards and a moderately full center of light canary-yellow, deepening to pale green at the base of the petals; notably fragrant. Medium tall and floriferous. Heavy flowers require mechanical support. Excellent foliage. The general impression is a rounded, flattish globe-like flower. Dependable and well regarded for its profuse production of medium-sized blooms and its excellent garden habit. “The flowers are best in their early stage; later on they are apt to spread open too much, exposing the carpels.”Saunders. Ships in late September to mid October.
