Rose Classification---Science or Mystic Maze?
Leonard L. Eyster, Bala-Cynwyd, Pa.

Let us look now at Amélie Gravereaux. This rose is classified as a Hybrid Rugosa, which to many minds might suggest, if it doesn't flatly indicate, that Amélie Gravereaux is half rugosa and half something else. Actually, this rose is one-fourth Hybrid Perpetual, one-fourth Noisette, and the remaining half Hybrid Rugosa. The half Hybrid Rugosa, bearing the name Conrad Ferdinand Meyer, was the outcome of crossing a cross of the Climbing Tea Gloire de Dijon and the Hybrid Perpetual Duc de Rohan, with Rosa rugosa germanica, presumably a species.

"Amelie Gravereaux - Hybrid Rugosa
Height 4 - 5 feet, not completely hardy [in Zone 3]. Flowers large, bright red, double, not as freely produced as Hansa, nor over as long a season."
Walter Schowalter notes - 1985

This is interesting, since My Amelie Gravereaux blooms better than my Hansa here in zone 4.
