From Dingee & Conard's 'New Guide to Rose Culture' 1894 page 13:

"New Roses Introduced in 1893 and 1894.

Monsieur Tillier (Introduced 1893). - The color is exquisite carmine, passing to coppery red; very pretty and distinct; flowers good size, quite double and highly tea scented. 25 cts each."

Thanks again Hubert. Good to see both 'Monsieur Tillier' and 'Archiduc Joseph' descriptions both described in an early catalogue.

I was asking Billy about the ultimate size of some Teas, so I could allow enough space for them in a new bed. She said her Tillier is now around 5 metres high and wide, after a decade or so. In case anyone was wondering how big this rose likes to get if given a chance.

Huge! Here after 19 years, it is probably 4m x 4m and competing with Sequoia roots.
The sizes are Height: 120cm - 205cm. Let's increase that to 200 x 500cm.
Width is now 90cm-305cm and I think 200-500 is more realistic.

Fondly known by more than one as "The Big Tea" and "Monster Tillier".

A healthy beast indeed. I would be satisfied with something like that.

Mine seems to be settling in nicely but it's still quite small.

Ah yes, well. That thing about it still being "quite small". Umm, it's now as tall as I am. This is after a few months of autumn and winter. God knows what's going to happen when spring hits.

Not that it matters. I gave it enough space to do Mermaid imitations if it wants to.

This is listed at Rogue Valley Roses as "Monsieur William Tillier."

Definitely no "William" in the name - if at all, it would have been "Guillaume". This can only qualify as a hidden name and should not be propagated as a synonym!
