‘Camaïeux’: Gallique… De hauteur modeste pour un gallique - à peine 1m - il ne manque pas de vigueur, et s’il est franc de pied, peut coloniser tout un coin de jardin. Peu épineux, vêtu d’un beau feuillage gris vert… Vibert, France, 1830.

Camayeux ('Camaien', 'Camaieu', 'Camaïeux', 'Camailleux') Gallica, Gendron/Vibert 1830. The author cites several sources... lilac pink, striped... As Joyaux has discovered, this rose evidently was grown from seed by one Gendron of Angers, France, and first bloomed in 1826. Vibert himself varied in his spelling of this cultivar's name ['Camayeux' is] the name under which it was originally introduced by him.
