´Violacea´ we have produce many hips, maybe that´s why so many different roses under this name.

Naasra, can you please post your photos of the Sangerhausen rose under 'Belle Sultane (hybrid alpina)', although this name might also be incorrect.

Sorry, I didn't realise that there actually is a 'Belle Sultane', Hybrid Alpina, here on HMF. I've posted the pictures there now, so you could delete this if it is possible.

I believe that Mahaeca and Violacea are not identical roses. At least at the Rosarium Sangerhausen, Germany, there exist serveral plants of a rose called Mahaeca, which are definitely different from Violacea.
In the Northern part of Germany, the same rose was shown to me in several gardens, where the owners told me that this is 'Violacea Major'.

Yes, 'Maheca' was the name given to several different roses or even rose types (velvet roses). This has not been sorted out yet.

I'm in SW Missouri, zone 6. I bought and planted La Belle Sultane in spring of 2009 grafted onto multiflora from Pickering. Much to my surprise I got a few blooms that first year. The spring of 2010 I got a wonderful show of blooms covering the bush, which consisted of many canes about 5 feet long. The shrub grew by about half that year.

La Belle Sultane blooms mid May for me, which is unfortunately around the time we get a lot of spring storms. These destroy the blooms. I'm going to cover the bush this year but that may turn out to be too much trouble. I'm very disappointed as pictures really don't do the beauty of this rose justice.

Leaves are perfectly healthy all season except when eaten by Japanese beetles. Rose isn't defoliated and recovers easily.

Rose was planted in un-amended soil in my no-spray garden.
