Notes:
Louis Philippe (Bermuda form) is growing at the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden.
Louis-Philippe, King of France. Born 6 October 1773 at the Palace Royale, France. Died 26 October 1850.

'Président d'Olbecque' is considered a synonym of 'Louis-Philippe' by some authors; however references show that these 2 roses have been considered distinct before Ellwanger stated they are synonyms in 1882 - almost 50 years after they were introduced. Similarly 'Purple Crown' and 'Triomphant are distinct roses.
