Les Rosiers Types by H.B. Ellwanger, Horticulteur à Rochester (États-Unis).
Type Géant des Batailles. (Nérard). -- Le fondateur de cette famille a été obtenu en 1846 par Nérard; il a sans aucun doute du Bourbon dans le sang. La couleur a différentes teintes cramoisi, très riches et remarquables quand elles sont dans la perfection, mais vilaines après. Le soleil leur donne vite une vilaine apparence. Les fleurs sont bien faites, mais petites, légèrement parfumées; fleurissent bien au printemps et au commencement de l'été, mais généralement pas en automne. Les pousses sont modérées ou courtes, joints courts, raides, droites et couvertes d'épines rouges. Le feuillage est vert foncé lustré, prenant vite le blanc. Se multiplie difficilement de boutures et gèle facilement.
Les enfants les plus connus sont : Arthur de Sansal, Cardinal Patrizzi, Crimson Bedder (1874), Empereur du Maroc, Eugène Appert, Évèque de Nîmes, Lord Raglan, Louis Chaix, Monsieur Standish, Vainqueur de Solferino.

Translation: The Rose Types by H.B. Ellwanger, horticulturalist at Rochester (United States).
Géant des Batailles Type. (Nérard) -- The founder of this family was bred in 1846 by Nérard; without a doubt it has Bourbon in its blood. Its color has different shades of crimson, very rich and remarkable when they are in perfection, but unattractive afterwards. The sun quickly gives them an undesirable appearance. The lightly perfumed flowers are well shaped, but small; they bloom well in spring and early summer, but not usually in autumn. Shoots are medium or short; stems short, stiff, straight and covered with red thorns. The foliage is a glossy dark green, bleaching easily. Difficult to propagate from cuttings, and freezes easily.
The best-known offspring are: Arthur de Sansal, Cardinal Patrizzi, Crimson Bedder (1874), Empereur du Maroc, Eugène Appert, Évèque de Nîmes, Lord Raglan, Louis Chaix, Monsieur Standish, Vainqueur de Solferino.

Géant des Batailles was raised...near Lyons, by an amateur of the name of Nérard, who in the same way for many years had been saving seed, convinced that he would obtain something good. It was sold to Guillot and by him let out.

History and Cultivation of the Rose.—Mr. Shirley Hibbard recently delivered a most interesting lecture on the Rose. Mr. Hibbard briefly sketched the history of the rose from the earliest times to the peace of 1815, when, he said, the first of the great French rose gardens was laid out by M. Vibert, and the improvement of the rose as a florist's flower commenced in earnest . The great majority of these varieties had been raised in France during the past forty-five years by MM. Vibert, Laffay, Hardy, Desprez, Prevost, Lacharme, Margottin, Guillot, Granger, and a few other professional and amateur growers. The lecturer enumerated the best roses raised by each, and gave a few historical memoranda of such roses as Annie Vibert, Jules Margottin, Geant des Betailles, Great Western, and others, tracing them to their parentage, and indicating, also, the varieties which had proceeded from them. The seedlings of Geant des Betailles, he said, were sufficiently numerous to constitute a rich collection of extraordinary roses, and they included Lord Raglan, General Jacqueminot, Duchess of Norfolk, Eveque de Nimes, Louis Chaix, and others of the crimson section of Hybrid perpetuals.
