Vibert, France, 1842
Not to be confused with the remontant Moss ‘Mll Alice Leroy’ by Trouillard from 1856.
Max Singer describes in 1885 in his Dictionnaire ‘Alice Leroy’: “Very beautiful blossom, to be recommended to collectors; flowers large, full, mossed regularly and abundantly; color, light lilac pink, shaded bright pink around the center.” And William Paul writes in his book The Rose Garden [1st edition, 1848]: “Lilac blush, shaded with rose, their centre deep rose, very large and double, well mossed; form, cupped, perfect. Growth, vigorous. A distinct and beautiful Rose; thrives well as a standard; should be pruned moderately close.”
