Three years after Philémon Cochet's death in 1896, his son Charles Cochet-Cochet introduced a fully double sport of Blanc Double de Coubert which he names Souvenir de Philémon Cochet. It has a mass of small petals packed into a dense arrangement like an old Damask rose. It is even more susceptible to rain damage than Blanc Double de Coubert but in all other respects it resembles the original.
All the roses we sell have been field grown and lifted when the conditions are at their best. If ordering potted roses, as the plants will not start to put on any more root growth until the spring, please do not be surprised to find the compost fall away from the roots when you take the plant out of its pot. We use a high quality compost so you can incorporate this when you plant your rose.
