‘Salut à Luxem­bourg’ is a striking free-flowe­ring  rose­bush. The simp­le litt­le flowers recall the notes of a score of joyful and light music. The num­e­rous buds open out into sin­gle pink pur­ple corollas with white cen­tres in light clus­ters, nest­ling against healt­hy oli­ve green lea­ves. The gold sta­mens attract many fora­ger bees.

To mark the 175th anni­ver­sa­ry of Luxem­bourg mili­ta­ry music and the 20th anni­ver­sa­ry of the non-pro­fit asso­cia­ti­on d’Frënn vun der Mili­tär­mu­sek, this rose­bush was named on 1 July 2017 on board the ship MS Prin­ces­se Marie-Astrid. The name ‘Salut à Luxem­bourg’ recalls the name of a com­po­si­ti­on by the Aus­tri­an Edmond Patz­ké (1844–1903), who was the Luxem­bourg mili­ta­ry music con­duc­tor from 1899 to 1903.
