Page 86: Some people believe that 'Victor Verdier', created by François Lacharme in 1859, was the original hybrid tea, but the rose generally accepted as being the first is 'La France', raised by Jean-Baptiste Guillot in Lyons, France, in 1867. The parents of 'La France' were supposedly a tea rose, 'Mme. Bravy', and a hybrid perpetual, 'Mme. Victor Verdier'. 'La France' is a long-stemmed, repeat-blooming, silvery pink rose with many petals and very good fragrance. It is here that the craze for modern roses started.
