Champney’s Pink Cluster (OGR)

Champneys’ Pink’, the first Noisette, a cross between Rosa moschata and ‘Old Blush’ (also known as Parsons’ Pink China, and also a parent of the Bourbons), was bred in Charleston, South Carolina in 1811. John Champneys shared cuttings and seeds with Philippe Noisette, who shipped young seedlings to his brother Louis in Paris, France. Louis hybridized new plants and introduced them as Noisette roses with great success. Of interest is that ‘Champneys’ Pink’ was lost to commerce for many years until found again in the early 1970’s
