[From Rose Letter, August 2018, pp. 14ff.:] Jacques Plantier was the first acclaimed rose breeder of Lyon, France. He was born on May 27, 1792. With a father and a grandfather as ardent gardeners, he soon developed a passion for horticulture, so that by age 19 he had become a gardener for Count d’Arloz at the Chateau de Grammont. In short time, he was virtually manager of the grounds. Visitors to the estate, noticing his fine work, soon made his reputation. Also working at the Chateau was a servant girl, Josephte (or Josette) Louise Bandol, about four years Jacques’ senior. The two were married in December 1812. About ten weeks later their son Claude Henri was born. During this time, Plantier had become interested in rose production.....When Plantier’s first wife and excellent helpmeet died in 1827, he married Charlotte Romain three years later. Sad to say, a year and six months later she died in childbirth.....In the spring of 1834, Jacques Plantier married Mary Frances Perrat. The following year he released a Hybrid Perpetual and his famous Hybrid Noisette ‘Mme Plantier’, named for his new wife. ... It was 1840 when he sold his establishment to Francois Lacharme, who had been a frequent visitor to the Plantier gardens.
