'Hippolyte'. (Syn) ‘Souvenir de Kean’. Early 1800’s. Clusters of fragrant double flowers of deep wine red, dusted with deeper purplish shading. Color is more intense when ‘Hippolyte’ is grown in a semi-shaded location. At first the blooms are globular then petals reflex around the button eyes. Arching, somewhat procumbent growth (to 5 feet) and nearly thornless canes. Origin of this attractive rose is lost in the mists of history. Kean was a well-known English actor; from classical mythology, Hippolyte was an Amazon queen.

Hippolyte Before 1842. Habit: upright shrub; can attain 2 m height and 2.50 m width; without prickles or bristles. Foliage: appearance of Gallica; light green; elliptical leaflets. Bloom: abundant flowering; most often in pairs, sometimes solitary or in 3s; medium, double, quartered; small eye in the centre. Colour: velvety deep violet; the white base of the petals visible at the centre. Fragrance: very weak. 'Hippolyte' is not a pure Gallica; probably some China figures in its ascendance. The breeder or year bred is unknown. The first catalogue in which we have found this variety mentioned is that of Van Houtte at Ghent in 1842. ...Some anglo-saxon authors state 'Souvenir de Kean' as synonym of 'Hippolyte', but we have not been able to establish the origin of this synonymity.
