Adèle Heu Gallica. Vibert 1816. The author cites several sources, including this description: "Flowers fine rosy purple, covered with white dots." Dickerson, himself, goes on to say: "The name of this cultivar, from Vibert's first commercial season, commemorates his recently deceased wife. We do not consider 'Duc d'Orléans' or 'Henri IV' to be synonyms of this cultivar." [Dickerson is an authority on Vibert.]

In the "Rosetum Gallicum" (1828), Desportes printed a list of all roses known at that period in France. Out of 2562 varieties listed, 1213 are Gallicas. Of these, Desportes gives no information about 332 of them, except their names. Of the rest 316 came from the Low Countries. The remaining 565 were bred by French raisers, of whom two stand head and shoulders above the rest: Vibert (97 varieties) and Miellez (212 varieties). These two bred over half the Gallicas produced during the Restoration. About a dozen of Vibert's Gallicas produced before 1828 are still with us. This is one of them.
