....La France, said to be a seedling of Mme. Falcot, an orange-yellow Tea, is now generally considered the first Hybrid Tea.   However, it was a stray seedling and some authorities have considered a more likely parentage to be Mme. Victor Verdier (a red Hybrid Perpetual) x Mme. Bravy (a pale blush Tea).

‘Madame Bravy’ (‘Danzille’,  ‘Alba Rosea’,  ‘Mme. de Serfot’, (sic)  ‘Mme. Denis’,  ‘Josephine Meltot’) (1846).   This was a famous Tea bred by Guillot with globular flowers in which the outer petals were somewhat short and the inner petals short and folded.   The colour is creamy white delicately blushed with rosy pink and has that glistening effect so beautiful too in ‘Duchesse de Brabant’.   This rose was also famous as a parent of the first Hybrid Tea ‘La France’
