Tess Allan.  Gallica Roses. 
D'Aguesseau is a vigorous bush with most arresting, bright-red, full flowers. As the scented roses age the outer petals become paler and suffused with purple, but they retain their pagan air. It is diverting to reflect that this rose was immortalised by the mid-Victorian Dean Hole on pages sixty and sixty one of his book A Book About Roses as the rose which first aroused his interest in the genus Rosa.
