To clarify: this is a photo of the rose sold as "Francis Dubreuil" in Australia. I don't think it is the real FD, as I understand that there are no plants of 'Francis Dubreuil' sold in Australia.
It is very fragrant.

It may, or may not, be the "real" Francis Dubreuil. There is a photo on line of the rose labeled Francis Dubreuil in the Adelaide Botanic Garden which does more closely fit the historic descriptions of the rose. Whatever this rose is, it is NOT Barcelona, what much of the world now grows as Francis Dubreuil.

A few years late with this reply, but just to clarify, the rose growing in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens is not an historical planting but one that was planted relatively recently, supplied by a local commercial rose nursery.
It is the same clone we all grow under this name and can be traced back to the budwood imported into Australia from Sangerhausen in 1981.

Huge blooms, vibrant colour, should be much more readily available commercially. One of my favourite modern roses.
Bred by Tasmania's much loved Lilia Weatherly.

Hello Abbi, Indeed, a beautiful rose.
Did anything come of a thought to make a public garden somewhere in Tasmania of Lilia's roses?

There are a couple of small public areas planted with Lilia's roses in The Claremont/Austins Ferry area. 'Light Touch' is along a fenceline at a shopping centre and the other area is a public park. Maintenance is a bit of a problem as the council doesn't seem able to fertilize and water on a regular basis. Lilia used to do that job herself. Thank you for the reminder, I will make enquiries about those areas and see if our regional group can organise maintenance somehow.

Wonderful. Lilia's roses are not really old-heritage, but are part of Tasmania's heritage. As they sprinkle, watering-can volunteers might like to remember how Lilia searched diligently for old roses throughout Tasmania. The old issues of the Heritage Roses in Australia journal gave many instances.
