'Fabvier' rose References

Another group of suspected synonyms and sports that the result of this study support is a red, semi-double flowered group based on the China Rose cultivar Fabvier (syn. 'Colonel Fabvier'). 'Fabvier' [ex Vintage Gardens], 'Martha Gonzales', and 'Old Gay Hill Red China' [both ex Antique Rose Emporium] (C40, C10, and C16) all had identical SSR profiles. Based on catalogue descriptions of the plants in commerce...the results suggest that the found rose 'Martha Gonzales' is actually 'Fabvier', and that 'Old Gay Hill Red China', also a found rose, is a taller growth form sport of 'Fabvier'.

"Martha Gonzales" was a found rose, shared with us by a Navasota, Texas gardener of the same name. The rose's ease of care and garden success, as touted by other gardeners, spread "Martha Gonzales" popularity through the landscape industry. She was so popular that she was registered with the American Rose Society. Sadly Martha Gonzales passed away in 1999, however, this rose continues to be a living tribute to this generous lady.....

Fabvier China. Laffay (France) 1832. Description... The crimson-scarlet, semi-double flowers... have heart-shaped petals with white streaks and a white center... prominent yellow stamens...

'Fabvier', France 1832. ‘Mme. Fabvier’ or ‘Général Fabvier’. A short growing variety approaching the form of a Polyantha Rose, but with typical China Rose stems, prickles, leaves, and lack of scent. The small flowers are borne singly or a few together, and have rather more than a single row of brilliant scarlet-crimson petals, often showing a white streak. It is a gay little plant, always in flower, but it is difficult to fit into the garden. It would be admirable in small formal Victorian beds, or can be given a place in front of modern roses. Leaves richly tinted when young, turning to dark leaden green. Almost scentless. 18 inches.
