La Reine (Translation, 'The Queen') Hybrid Perpetual. Laffay, 1844. Possibly a seedling of 'William Jesse' [Hybrid Bourbon]. [The author cites information from many different sources, including some interesting background information on Laffay and his breeding program]... Bright rose tinged with lilac... One of the gems of the [1844] season... The largest and most magnificent of all the Perpetuals, often attaining the size of a double paeony... Often shaded with lilac, and sometimes with crimson... Has the appearance of a true perpetual cabbage, but much larger... smooth bark.. occasional thorns... not very hardy... it rivals the Centifolias in scent and color, but surpasses them in the size of the flower... In some situations -- particularly late in the autumn -- delicately striped or veined with carmine... it is the product of planned breeding. The seeds were produced in 1835, and first bloomed in 1841... 'Rose de la Reine'... It was September 5, 1843, that Mons Laffay, amateur horticulturalist of Bellevue, near Paris, presented to the general circle of horticulture four samples of ['La Reine']... Mons. Laffay, who has bred many introductions, always dedicates them to English princes... 'La Reine perfectly justifies the name 'The Autumnal Centifolia'...
