From the Rosen-Zeitung Sep 1912, page 93 (Text accompanying coloured plate):

"Freiherr von Marschall (Teerose).
(Princesse Alice de Monaco x Rose d'Evian.)

Ueberall auf Rosenausstellungen, wo Rosen ausgepflanzt waren, hat man sicher auch eine Gruppe der Rose Freiherr von Marschall angetroffen. Die dunkelrote, hübsche Belaubung fiel immer schon von Weitem auf. Der Wuchs ist kräftig gedrungen. Die lange, spitze Knospe öffnet sich leicht zur gutgefullten Blume von dunkel-karminroter Farbe. Durch ihre
Reichblütigkeit eignet sie sich vorzüglich zur Gruppenbepflanzung. Die Wirkung einer solchen Gruppe ist großartig.

Die Rose "Freiherr von Marschall" eignet sich zu allen Zwecken; denn ebensogut wie sie als niedrige Rose ist, ist sie auch als Hochstamm. Aber auch als Schnittrose ist sie sehr zu schätzen. Sie remontiert gut. Auch im Winter ist sie nicht empfindlich. Herr Peter Lambert, Trier, hat 1903 diese Sorte dem Handel übergeben.
Da sie mit zu den besten Züchtungen gerechnet werden darf, verdient sie allgemeine Verbreitung."

My translation:

Everywhere at rose exhibitions, where roses were planted, one invariably finds a group of the rose "Freiherr von Marschall". The dark red, pretty foliage is always noticeable from a distance. The growth is vigorously robust. The long, pointed bud opens easily to the full double flower of dark carmine-red colour. Because of its
freedom of flowering it is excellent for group plantings. The effect of such a group is marvellous.

The rose "Freiherr von Marschall" is suitable for all purposes; It does as well as a bush rose as it does on a tall standard. Even as a cut rose it is very much appreciated. It repeats well. It is not even sensitive in winter. Mr. Peter Lambert, Trier, introduced this variety to commerce in 1903. Since it can be counted among the best of varieties, it deserves broad distribution.

I wish this rose would resurface. The last plant of it I knew of was at the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden. Alas, it is no longer there. Imagine the fun you could have playing with this!

My apologies. I uploaded two photos today for 'Duc de Cambridge' but placed them incorrectly with Margottin's rose rather than with Laffay's. Please remove them. Again, I am sorry for the error.

Reminds me of cherry blossoms. Is good for foraged arrangements. I really like this rose.
It is invasive...makes a good fence.

Looks beautiful - thanks for the cutting. Looks more like a sport of Lady Gay to me than a sport of The Fairy. Anyone have more info on this? Lady Gay is a once bloomer and The Fairy repeats so if Lady Carolina is a once bloomer with no repeat that would clinch the ID?

Not necessarily. Many climbing sports of bush roses are once-flowering. Many of the old cl HTs were once flowering. There are once-flowering climbing sports of Mlle Cecile Brunner and the original climbing sport of Iceberg was once-flowering until a further mutation was found which flowered repeatedly. That one has pretty much replaced all the once-flowering Cl. Icebergs in commerce. Lady Carolina repeated at Limberlost Roses in Van Nuys, CA years ago. If the climate and conditions support it, it will repeat. If not, it likely won't. But whether it does or doesn't, once-flowering doesn't prove it's a sport of a once-flowering rose.
