American Roses by H. B. Ellwanger

Mme. Boll (Daniel Boll). Sent out by Mons. Boyeau, of Angers, France, in 1859. Growth vigorous; foliage very large and handsome, of a pale green color; spines numerous. Flowers large or very large; form flat; color carmine rose; a free autumnal bloomer and very hardy; perhaps the most hardy in the class. One of the most superb roses for the garden.

Mr. Boll, now deceased, who was by birth a Swiss, produced a number of seedling Hybrid Perpetuals of merit; several of these were sold to parties in France, who sent them out as their own. Among these was Mme. Boll. It would be interesting to know, whether any among them besides Mme. Boll, are now famous.

I recommend this rose for those who are after a true damask fragrance.

Since Quatre Saisons has not proved reliably remontant in my climate, and because I have only a small garden, I have been looking to replace it with a repeat flowering rose that would give me the same scent. I have tried some from the Portlands group, and the fragrance of Comte de Chambord (unlike Indigo and Jacques Cartier) proved, to my nose, very similar to the true damask fragrance of Quatre Saisons.

Interestingly, the colour of the bloom and texture of the petals of these two roses are also very close in appearance.

Disclaimer: The above remarks apply to the rose sold as Comte de Chambord in the UK, and to how it performs in a pot in my English climate!
