Notes:
Explorer Jacques Cartier died at the age of 65 on January 1, 1557.

Mike Lowe says Jacques Cartier is a Damask Perpetual and assigns it a date of 1868...

Some say the rose sold as 'Jacques Cartier' is really 'Marchesa Boccella' . There is also some difference of opinion about raiser. [See References]

Due to confused labeling, the rose now grown as 'Jacques Cartier' must be exhibited as 'Marchesa Boccella' in American Rose Society rose shows. However, the correct original name of the rose was 'Marquise Boccella'.
