Rosa 'Perle d'Or' is a rose cultivar bred by Joseph Rambaux in 1875 and introduced by Francis Dubreuil in France in 1883. Its parents were a double-flowered R. multiflora seedling and the tea rose 'Madame Falcot' (Guillot, 1858). It is sometimes considered to be a china rose and sometimes considered a polyantha, and is also known as 'Yellow Cécile Brünner'', as the pale apricot rose greatly resembles the related pale pink 'Cécile Brünner'.
The small, full flowers have 26 to 40 petals, forming small light rosettes with an average diameter of 4 centimetres (1.6 in). Their colour is creamy amber with a hint of pink and ages to white, starting at the edges. Their fragrance is described as sweet and fruity, and varying in strength from light to strong. They develop from vermillion, long, ovoid buds and appear in large, long-stemmed clusters of 5 to 25 in flushes throughout the season.
'Perle d'Or' has well-branched shoots with glossy, medium to dark green foliage, and very few scattered, large prickles. The vigorous shrub grows densely, reaching 0.9 to 1.8 metres (3.0 to 5.9 ft) height at a width of 0.6 to 1 metre (2.0 to 3.3 ft), and is winter hardy down to -20 °C (USDA zone 6 to 7). While the original form is a low shrub, a climbing sport also exists (discovered before 1931).
