Rugosas and their hybrids.
Amelie Gravereaux. Hybrid Rugosa. (J. Gravereaux, 1903.) Flower carmine purple, shaded red, large, nearly full. Growth vigorous.
Book  (1927)  Page(s) [1].  Includes photo(s).
Amelie Gravereaux (Pronounced Grave-ro). Carmine red- full double- very fragrant.  One of the new and one of the very choicest of the Rugosa Hybrids.  The flowers open as a rich carmine red which turns to deep American Beauty color as they mature.  The large flowers are unusually beautiful in the partially opened bud.  The Amelie Gravereaux has a delightful fragrance.  It is a liberal bloomer, often carrying a dozen blooms within eight weeks after planting.  It blooms liberally in June but even more so in August and September.  This is a hardy and thrifty bush of beautiful foliage which makes a real attraction as a shrub.  We consider this new creation a rose “par excellence’’ that is rapidly winning favor throughout the country.  Dr. J. P. Aylen, a recognized rose enthusiast, of Fargo, N. D., writes: “Impossible to relate all the good points of my Amelie Gravereaux rose in a letter of few lines.  Planted in 1919, it is now a large bush which blooms from June until frost with hundreds of blossoms.  It certainly outranks all other hardy roses I know.  I have 41 varieties but they are mostly Hybrid teas and perpetuals.  My Amelie Gravereaux has been for several years the wonder of this community and hundreds of people visited it during the season.”
