Comments Coppery flowers fade to salmon and then creamy pink - always subtly colored like its tea rose parent. Flowers have a nice form, but it can be a little parsimonious with flowers; but there is a bit of repeat through the season.

BTW: According to Charles Quest-Ritson Paul Noel and Paul Transon "so regularly confused with each other that the latter has become rather rare. ... Paul Transon never has a mass of quill-shaped petals radiating out like an apricot sunburst - that is unique to Paul Noel" If this is true then a vast portion of photos to be found claiming to be of Paul Transon are actually Paul Noel.
