Hybrid Tea, Pernetiana.  
Golden-yellow, orange shading, darker center, ages to lemon-yellow .  Mild to strong fragrance.  Large, double (17-25 petals), cupped, globular bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  Large, ovoid buds.  
Bushy, few or no prickles/thorns, upright.  Glossy, reddish-purple foliage.

In the 1925 Bagatelle contest, this Rose was declared the most important yellow garden Rose, and deemed worthy of the name 'Ville de Paris' for which honor a large cash premium had been posted several years previously -- to be awarded when a Rose good enough for it could be produced. Every French hybridizer competed for that greatest honor -- and purse. After winning it, Monsieur Pernet declared this to be the crowning of his long career, and retired from business. (He died Nov. 23, 1928.)
