Bonjour !
I would like to buy 'Victor Verdier' (HP, Lacharme) in Europe, the prototype of Tea Hybrids.
The German nursery indicated on HmF has not this rose, but 'Mme Victor Verdier'
Any suggestion?
Thanks in Advance for your help

Thank you, I see they have a beautiful catalogue with very nice pictures. I am glad you consider their 'Victor Verdier' is the right one. For me, this prototype rose should be planted in every rose garden concerned by the history of the roses and particularly by the beginnings of the modern roses.

If this is a cross between and Hybrid Perpetual (Jules Margottin) and a Tea (Safrano), wouldn't that make it a Hybrid Tea?

Good question. According to most rose history books, the first hybrid tea rose is 'La France' which was introduced in 1867. Your question shows that breeers were working with crosses of hybrid perpetuals and teas prior to the recognition of the outcome as a separate class of roses.

This is described as almost thornless and armed with thorns. Which is it?

The authorities listed under the References tab don't agree about Victor Verdier's armature. Mrs. Keays describes the canes as almost smooth, while Harkness and Moody say it's thorny.
