There are two magnificent bushes of "Carlesruhe Cemetery Red China" on the graves of Anna Janitz, 12 1/2 who died in 1882 and also Johann Dorwald who died in 1876. These are both bushes of Louis-Philippe (Guerin, 1833) as identified by Phillip Robinson and Gregg Lowery (Vintage Gardens, California) and recently Mike Shoup (Antique Rose Emporium, Texas). Both bushes have remarkable bases which are enormous and show their ripe old age.

p78. Mike Shoup: 'Cramoisi Superieur'. This plant and the rose 'Louis Philippe' have often been mistaken for each other. 'Cramoisi Superieur' flowers are cupped, rich crimson color with a silvery reverse different from 'Louis Philippe' in the absence of the white streaking near the base of the flower. (Both plants at certain times of the year can produce mimicking flowers).....
