D’Aguesseau. Old. Gallica, medium red. Upright and vigorous with strong stems and few thorns, this fine rose can reach 5 ft (1.5 m) high and has plentiful foliage, which is a luscious dark green. The nicely scented flowers are borne in tight clusters from fat, dark red buds. They are very full of vibrant cerise petals with paler undersides, and form full, flat flowers that are quartered in form with tight buttons in the center. The color neither fades nor deepens with age. It is well scented and flowers in mid-summer. Vibert, the giant of French rose hybridizing, grew up in Paris during the Revolution and served as a soldier in Napoleon’s army. Shortly before he died aged 89, he told his young grandson, ‘I have loved only Napoleon and roses.” Zones 4-10. Vibert, France, 1837. Parentage unknown.

‘d’Aguesseau’. Vibert, France 1832. The most brilliant red I have found among the Gallicas. A vigorous plant up to 4 or 5 feet with big foliage of typical Gallica form. The flowers are very full, and open quickly to flat, quartered blooms, sometimes with button eyes; the outer petals reflex and develop a vivid cerise-pink leaving the intense cerise-scarlet in the centre.

Gallica. Parentage unknown. Flower: deep pink, scented. Henri d'Aguesseau, Chancellor of France, is best remembered for his reforms of French law in the early 18th century, but this rose is more likely named after his grandson, the Marquis d'Aguesseau, who died in 1826, three years after Vibert introduced this rose.
