On the occasion of the 175th anniversary of the birth of the great master of French gastronomy, epicureans from all over the world gathered on October 28 . An AUGUSTE ESCOFFIER® Meizasmyne rose was offered to HSH Prince Albert II by the Auguste Escoffier Foundation.

This variety, dedicated to the most famous chef of his time, the first chef to be awarded the Legion of Honor, is truly exceptional. The plant is very healthy and well balanced. The abundance of peach flowers, which exude a light almond scent until late fall, are reminiscent of Auguste Escoffier’s most famous creation: the peach melba. Its exceptional resistance to diseases as well as its compact size make it a very versatile rose, which thrives in the garden as well as in a large pot on the terrace.
