I'm not trying to make a big fuss out of this, but just to keep the facts straight - Belle Epoche was licensed to Fryers. I don't know how they can claim credit for developing it or give it their own denomination. This rose was actually hybridized by Jack Christensen (me) in the United States and has the international denomination CHRiscinn. The descriptive information and photos are correct - and beautiful.
