Livermore, CA. 27 April 2021. For comparison, 'Rose du Roi - of commerce', as sold by Vintage Gardens. This blossom is 3.5" diameter on a mature bush that is 3' x 3' and rather open with relatively sparse foliage. Some (but not all!) photos of blooms posted under 'Rose du Roi à Fleurs Pourpres' on this site resemble the blooms on this plant.

In light of there being so many pictures of roses going around under the name of 'Rose du Roi', I'm uploading some of my plant from Vintage Gardens, who propagated theirs as a reversion from 'Panachee de Lyon'. I've had to try and improve my poor photography to increase sharpness and decrease exposure, but no color alterations were made. This picture from May 2018 -- five years after planting it as an own-root band -- shows the size and general habit of the plant. Bloom color is muddled. I've come to learn that this rose benefits from having its canes shortened by about one-third in late Winter to prevent the canes from being too top-heavy due to ever-shorter distances between the growth buds as one goes up the canes. Even so, have a few bamboo stakes ready. I've also found that a harder prune after the first flush -- cutting canes again by half -- results in much more branching down below, balancing this rose's tendency to grow top-heavy later on.
