The scented rose Rene Goscinny is a deeply filled garden rose with a light apricot perfume. Each rose is a little different in color from one another.

The edges of the outer leaves of the flowers sometimes have an attractive coloring effect with darker shades, almost brownish.

The flowers are beautiful in every stade; the flower buds open up in hollow rosettes, each with 80-90 petals. The Rene Goscinny roses have a wonderful fruity aroma.

The Story behind the Rose Rene Goscinny

Who was René Goscinny?
René Goscinny was a French comics editor and writer, who is best known internationally for the comic book Astérix, which he created with illustrator Albert Uderzo, and for his work on the comic series Lucky Luke with Morris (considered the series’ golden age) and Iznogoud with Jean Tabary.

Goscinny died at 51, in Paris of cardiac arrest on 5 November 1977, during a routine stress test at his doctor’s office. In accordance with his will, most of his money was transferred to the chief rabbinate of France.

After Goscinny’s death in 1977, Uderzo continued to produce the Astérix series, although at a much slower pace, until passing the series over in 2011 to Jean-Yves Ferri (script) and Didier Conrad (art).

In a tribute to Goscinny, Uderzo gave his likeness to one of the characters in L’Odyssée d’Astérix (“Asterix and the Black Gold”).

Lucky Luke - Always on the run
After several years of solitary work on the strip, the creator of Lucky Luke, Morris, began a collaboration with René Goscinny who became the series' writer for a period that is considered the golden age of the series
