Comments If David Austin had invented polyantha roses, this is what they would be. The flowers are globular (chaliced, in his language) and rather large by polyantha standards. packing close to one hundred petals. They might be compared to a Souvenir de la Malmaison or Claire Rose in shape, color, and tendency to ball in wet weather. Similarly, the plant is on a somewhat large frame for a polyantha, reaching as much as 3 x 3 ft in warm climates. Clotilde Soupbert builds up slowly, especially in cooler climates. To potentiate its rather extreme propensity to produce flowers, it will require plenty of sunlight, food, and water.
