Descemet was another great rose grower of the Empire period. His nursery was at St-Denis near Paris. In 1815 his nurseries were destroyed during the war and at that time he had imported or bred more than a hundred Gallicas -- in fact 109 are know. Only 15 of these remain -- this is one of them.

Belle Sans Flatterie Dupont in Paris had, in 1813, a collection of 218 species and varieties of roses, of which 60 were Gallicas. Of his 60 Gallicas, this is one of the twelve that still exist.

In the Rosetum Gallicum (1828), Desportes printed a list of all roses known at that period in France. Out of 2562 varieties listed, 1213 are Gallicas. Of these, Desportes gives no information about 332 of them, except their names. Of the rest 316 came from the Low Countries. The remaining 565 were bred by French raisers, of whom two stand head and shoulders above the rest: Vibert (97 varieties) and Miellez (212 varieties). These two bred over half the Gallicas produced during the Restoration. About a dozen of Vibert's Gallicas produced before 1828 are still with us. This is one of them.
