Maid of Honor rose photo

As we see, the introducer in his own ad in the year of the rose's introduction indicates manifestly that the sport-parent is 'Catherine Mermet'. The error that its parent was 'Bridesmaid' seems to derive from a momentary lapse by the Secretary of the Society of American Florists, Wm. J. Stewart, who in an item for The Weekly Florists' Review, vol. 3, p. 203, in listing the recent registration of the variety indeed says, 'A sport from Bridesmaid'; but the actual registration, as reported in the Proceedings of the Annual Convention of the Society of American Florists and Ornamental Horticulturists, where its registration is given fully as "Jan. 19, 1899.--Rose Maid of Honor. A sport from Catherine Mermet; pink in color. By Hoffmeister Floral Co." (vol. 17, 1901, p. 117), which confirms what Hoffmeister had stated in the introductory advertisement.

From the George H. Mellen Co. catalog of 1897, p. 17, where it is made manifest that their name for 'Léonie Osterrieth' is 'White Soupert' (which should be added to the synonymy, as it was picked up by others as well).
