Charles Foucquier dk purplish rose HCh was in the listing for Adelaide Botanic Garden in 1859. Has anyone any references please?

Can anybody help me please? I am trying to find out the background history and details/information about a rose that I have called "Spanish Lady"? It is a light red HT, with overtones of black stripes, mid-green Fol, vigorus & erect growth, semi-double blooms, and slightly fragrant. I would like to know year & place of release, and it's parentage if possible. Thank you in anticipation of some info.

Mme. Gregoire Staechelin ?

I am sorry, but I don't understand your post. Do you mean (1) is "Mme. Gregoire Staechelin" the correct name (or synonom) for "Spanish Lady"?; or (2) that one of it's parents might be "Mme. Gregoire Staechelin"?; or (3) something else? Please enlighten me - thanks for your reply.

Another name for 'Mme. Gregoire Staechelin' is 'Spanish Beauty', so it was a guess on my part. However as 'Spanish Beauty' is pink, and 'Spanish Lady' is red it was probably a bad guess. I do have a Trewallyn 1997 catalogue and the wording is exactly as you have said. But I have never seen 'Spanish Lady' listed elsewhere. Do you have a photograph of the rose? Someone needs to contact Trewallyn Nursery, near Bundaberg in Queensland to ask for more info on the rose. Is there a Queenslander out there who could do so?

Thank you for clarifying your question, and yes I do know about that one, although I did not realize that 'Mme. Gregoire Staechelin' was a synonym for it. Thanks for that new tid-bit of info! As for 'Spanish Lady', I bought that originally from Trevallyn Nursery, and have already asked them about it, and they were unable to help me further - so far at least - but we are both working together to try and find out more about the rose, because apparently they have also received other requests for it's parentage.

We will make a file for 'Spanish Lady' so that when you have photos or new information, it can go straight into the file.

This is a repeat from the General/Miscellaneous category):
1. Who was Mme Leonie Viennot?
2. Does anyone know anything about the 1891 hybrid perpetual 'Monsieur de Morand'? (How tall and wide does it grow? Will it tolerate any shade? Who was Morand?)

You may read one account of the naming of 'Souv. de Mme LĂ©onie Viennot here:

To read what the books say about Monsieur de Morand, please check the references on the rose page. I had no luck on de Morand in Lyon, but the name is prominent (bridge, hotel), so I'll bet you could track it down using google and a lot of patience.

Viennot was a horticulturist in Dijon. He was specialised in trees (fruits, pines etc), he was also designing gardens and public parks. He had an interesting rose collection.

There were a Viennot 'father', a Viennot 'Son' and a 'Rigaut-Viennot'.
I do not know for certain who Mme Leonie was related to.
