Found Rose, Hybrid Perpetual.
Carmine-red to carmine-pink. Moderate fragrance. Very large, very double bloom form.
Gerda Nissen was of the opinion that 'La Reine' in commerce is misidentified and should be deep carmine-pink as in the "Journal des Roses" illustration. It is currently believed that the rose she identified as "La Reine" is actually 'Mme Victor Verdier'.
