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.
