I’ve been so embarrassed. Having gathered into my garden, two separate plants of ‘Général Jacqueminot’, I had to admit to a friend that I wouldn’t know ‘Général Jacqueminot’ if I fell over it. They just haven’t grown that well. To make amends I have been reading up on the rose. As far as I can see, the bloom is not terribly full and it shows the stamens when fully opened. (The black and white illustrations I have found and uploaded on to HelpMeFind seem exaggerated as to the fullness.) The leaves have “marked serrations” and when you consider the parent ‘Gloire des Rosomanes’ with its deep serrations on the leaf edge, that is understandable. The word “thin” occurs often and I believe this refers to the foliage and perhaps to the texture, and not to the width. Prickles are numerous, and unequal. Apparently the wood is green, and supposed to be “slender” or “not very thick". So now, if I stub my toe on the stubs of my plants, I might just know it. But there are two discrepancies that still bother me. Gwen Fagan (1988 reference) has said “stout stems”; and “unfoliated” sepals and her superb photo shows unfoliated sepals. In the 1873 reference the sepals are said to be “leaf-like” and two of those old black and white illustrations do show foliated (leaf-like) sepals.
So, can anyone help me on the Auld Jineral’s sepals and stems?

Vintage Gardens does not have General Jaqueminot listed on its website at present.

Yes -- it is there. See, http://www.vintagegardens.com/roses.aspx?cat_id=20. By custom root only at the moment, but that still counts as a source.

I've had this rose in my garden for nine years. General Jack is as winter hardy as they come, canes and all. When most of the Hybrid Teas were taken to the ground by -20 temps this one only required a trim to take off dry tips. It drips with blooms every Spring.

I'm not a fan of once bloomers, but this one is so enchanting when it does bloom that I couldn't bear to take it out.
