Pierre Guillot states that 'Mr. Tillier' is a descendant of 'Safrano à fleurs rouges'.- see References.

'Mons. Tillier' in commerce in the United States and Australia is sold as 'Archiduc Joseph' in Europe. Opinion is divided regarding the correct identity. This is a non-climbing Tea rose.

The climbing hybrid tea 'Marie Nabonnand' has and is still being sold by some nurseries under the name of 'Monsieur Tillier'. See 'Marie Nabonnand'.

The true 'Mons. Tillier' is a shrub Tea, carmine red washed with brick passing to red shaded violet with straight smooth pedicels. See References.

P. Tillier, Amphion (Haute-Savoie), was working with the magazine Le Lyon Horticole and was breeding Chrysanthemums. "Mons. Tillier" is a French abbreviation for Monsieur (or M.) Tillier.
