Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"This respectable Bourbon shrub has somewhat fanciful flowers of a very soft pink, striped and splashed with violet and mauve. They are medium-sized, double, and loosely cupped with a full amount of the heavy "rose" fragrance typical of the class. The bush is more compact and branching than some of the Bourbons, but can be trained as a moderate pillar rose as well as a shrub. ‘Honorine de Brabant’ blends beautifully in old rose arrangements and makes a nice surprise in plantings of more restrained, single colored flowers."
