Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"A descendent of the famous 'General Jacqueminot,' Ethelyn Emery Keays in her book "Old Roses" likens this rose as a "Family head in the subdivision of the Hybrid Perpetuals." 'Alfred Colomb' exhibits flowers of bright crimson with a darker blush and is healthy and vigorous. The fragrance of the flowers is a delight."
