Website/Catalog (27 Jul 2011)
Rosa ‘Jules Margottin’
Thomas Rivers considered that it ought to have been named ‘Brennus Perpetual’ because of its similarity to this old Hybrid China rose. Hybrid Perpetual. A ‘La Reine’ seedling, it has a vigorous habit, thick, dark green foliage and shapely, pointed buds which open to large, flattish, finely shaped, strongly scented, light vivid crimson flowers. To 1.2m. [Paul (1863, 1888, 1903), Rivers (1854, 1857, 1863), Gard. Chron. 1856, Amat].
Horticultural & Botanical History
Introduced by Margottin père of Paris in 1853. Rivers wrote in The Gardeners’ Chronicle of 1854 that ‘for growing on its own roots, and pegging down, for a pillar rose, and as a standard, it is equally well adapted, and will soon be in every rose garden’. It was recommended as a free-flowering and late-flowering rose and was considered a good bedder. In the first great National Rose show held in July 1858, ‘Jules Margottin’ was listed amongst the roses appearing in multiple (15) winning collections. [Gad. Chron 1858]. Louis van Houtte included ‘Jules Margottin’ in an Énumération des plus belles variétiés et….des autres!, all Hybrid Perpetuals, in the Flore des Serres. [FS pgs.91-102 vol.15/1864].
