Blanche Moreau (Perpetual Moss) [Comtesse de Murinais x Perpetual White Moss]

Roses and Rose Culture (1892)

This is known as a perpetual moss, and has all the characteristics of the other mosses except that it blooms in the autumn, and is therefore valuable in prolonging the flowering season. The chief beauty of all moss roses are in the buds and, while these varieties which bloom in the autumn do not give as many buds as those which bloom only in the summer months, they still are very valuable in producing these flowers. They need high culture and rather close pruning early in the spring.
