MME.CALOT. (Miellez, 1856.) 8.1.

Double type; large; early. Globular at first, very light old-rose-pink with creamy tints in the collar, and the somewhat darker center strongly marked with crimson flakes; very fragrant. Tall; extremely floriferous; strong stems. Excellent foliage.

A cut-flower variety of considerable popularity because of its earliness, unfailing productiveness, and the general high quality of its blooms.

"Blooms are not of high quality until third year or later; perhaps more noticeable in this variety than most others."—Fewkes.

'Mme Calot' (syn. 'Roem van Boskoop'; 'Leonie') Miellez, Frankrijk, 1856) Bloemen licht oudroze (RHS CC 65D, Red Purple Group), in het hart crèmekleurig, dicht gevuld (alleen buitenste tepalen volgroeid), sterk geurend, middelvroeg; bladeren opvallend puntig, matglanzend groen; hoogte 80 cm; bloemstengels matig stevig; vertakking is matig tot goed. Deze oude Franse cultivar valt op door de compacte (volle) bloem, de aangename geur en het mooie blad. Daarentegen is deze cultivar iets gevoelig voor Botrytis, maar een positieve beoordeling is toch gerechtvaardigd.
