Noisette \Noi*sette"\, n. (Bot.)
   A hybrid rose produced in 1817, by a French gardener,
   Noisette, of Charleston, South Carolina, from the China rose
   and the musk rose. It has given rise to many fine varieties,
   as the Lamarque, the Marechal (or Marshal) Niel, and the
   Cloth of gold. Most roses of this class have clustered
   flowers and are of vigorous growth. --P. Henderson.
