What's the current thinking on the ID of the rose sold under this name? Thanks.

Are there still concerns about the authenticity of the rose sold as ‘Elie Beauvilain’. I did once have a concern (see comment July 14, 2008) but am certainly reconsidering. An email dated 2005 to me says the American rose came from the Roseraie de l’Hay, propagated in France and mailed to Berkeley under the name of ‘Elie Beauvilain’.

I note that the yellowish photo (same as plate 191 in the Old Rose Advisor) may be ‘Gloire de Libourne’. Has this been confirmed? And if so, perhaps this photo could be moved.

Elie is in my hot humid south Louisiana garden going on its second year and this is defenitely a great rose for our climate. It's a monster already, having completely overtaken the fence that I planted it near in the Fall of 09 when it was less than a foot tall. By spring 2010, it had made it to the end of the six foot section and this spring it's arching up to the roof of our one-story house. Hardly an blackspot and no other signs of disease and easily grown from a cutting. When I moved it from its pot into the ground at the initial planting, I accidentally broke a cane off. I stuck the end in a pot and forgot about it. I now have two Elie's b/c the cane rooted and has become a large bush. Of course, it took me a year and a half until it bloomed this spring to figure out what it was ... Great rose for hot humid gardens.

I rustled a cutting of this rose from San Juan Bautista State Historical Park (San Juan Bautista Mission), California.  It was hanging over a fence, with a tag identifying it.  I couldn't resist, and decided it needed a little trimming...  I grow it in San Jose, CA. on a south-facing fence.  It midlews off and on, but as it is in an out-of-the-way location I don't worry about that too much.  By the time spring comes around, mildew is not evident on the mature leaves.  Then the surprise comes!  Multiple buds, formed along arching canes, erupt into a pink with yellow base blend of old-fashioned loose and blousey blossoms.  The bloom surge lasts a few months, with a smattering later in the summer.  They are great for short-stemmed cutting, but as they are a relaxed bloom, they look best festooning the canes along a fence, or heaven forbid, arching up into the neighbor's trees!

I grow this rose in West Marin Co. in the Bay Area, and it has never mildewed here. It is one of the best Tea-Noisettes I grow. (It is also one of the few that are gopher-protected in my garden.) Elie is a happy, healthy plant in No. California. Highly recommended!
