Gloire de Dijon (translation, 'Dijon's Glory') Jacotot, 1853. Noisette. From 'Desprez à Fleur Jaune' x 'Souvenir de la Malmaison'. [Author cites information from numerous sources. Among the entries, is a passage from the American Rose Annual describing an American soldier's pilgrimmage to the raiser's garden (in 1917) to see the original 'Gloire de Dijon'. Also, an interesting references from The Horticulturalist: Almost an exact resemblance of the Bourbon Rose 'Souvenir de la Malmaison', and, like that fine Rose, it requires dry warm weather to open its flowers in perfection.]

The first yellow-blooming european garden roses have been bred as crosses of 'Park's Yellow Tea-scented China'. Unfortunately this rose is no longer available and seems extinct. As oldest hybrid among whose ancestors she is and which is available to us, we have selected 'Gloire de Dijon (Jacotot, 1853). The colouring of her blooms varies strongly varies: often they are brownish-yellow with pink. We can already deduce from this a content of carotenoids and anthocyanides. The analysis indeed found that among anthocyanides there is mostly cyanine and a little chrysanthemine. This suggests a cross with a european garden rose with pink or red blooms. Carotenoids are well represented with 50 mg%. The main amount is still from the colourless representatives; Lycopin and Betacarotene are found only in traces. The main part (21%) of the coloured carotenoids is a reduced Lycopin with 27 instead of the originally 40 carbon atoms and 8 instead of the original 11 conjugated double bonds. Its colour is therefore a light, pure yellow. The total colour of the bloom follows from the play of anthocyanides with the carotenoids.
