I have had this rose for 5 years and have always enjoyed it.I live in the Northwest so disease can sometimes be a problem but it has done very well for me.The fragrance is absolutly wonderful.Its actually been living in a container all this time.The blooms can ball up in the rain,but I have a covered porch so I bring it up there to enjoy it longer.Its one of my favorite oldies.

Hello, I just read your entry about La Reine, the hy p. You write that you have kept it in a container for 5 years. Could you tell me how large the container is, and how often you need to either repot it, and trim the roots. Many thanks. Gloria Barnett

Found in the plantings at San Juan Bautista State Historical Park. Closely suckering erect growing Hybrid Perpetual-like or damask-like shrub with very straight stems with small light brown nearly perpedicular prickles. Tip-flowers in a closely spaced cluster. Sets numerous hips which are tan brown 1/2 inch in diameter with a tapered base and a prominent ring at the top. Buds on slender pedicels, hypanthium small, oval, topped by a distinct neck before the sepals which are barley longer than the bud. Three of the sepals with pointy narrow foliations. Possibly 'Rose Edouard' or 'Rose Edward' the original Bourbon.

The use of the incorrect synonym, La Reine Victoria, for the bourbon creates impossible confusion between:
'Reine Victoria', Schwartz, 1872 - the floppy bourbon and
'La Reine', Laffay, 1844, the upright hybrid perpetual.

To say 'La Reine Victoria' is to talk of two different roses in the one breath.
