References to both Small Maiden's Blush and Great Maiden's Blush are given here. please see specific Reference for more information.
Bosse (1842) states 'Grande Cuisse de Nymphe' = 'Small Maiden's Blush' = 'Cluster Maiden's Blush'
'Beauté Tendre' differs from 'Cuisse de Nymphe' by its foliage, which is more glaucous and rounded, and its ovary, which is shorter. - see References.

The Swedish Rose Society recommends Maiden's Blush for northern Sweden.
"Tertti" or "Tertin Kartano" (KESKAS-833) is a found rose from Finland which has been identified as 'Small Maiden's Blush' (2005).
