'Jacques Cartier' rose References
Book  (Nov 1994)  
p45. 'Jacques Cartier'. Moreau-Robert, France, 1868. Compact and erect habit with plenty of light-green leaves, the terminal leaflet exceptionally long and narrow. Sepals often pronouncedly foliaceous. Flowers very full, quartered and with button eyes. Very fragrant. 5 feet.
This rose has been, and still is, confused with 'Marquise Bocella' of 1842. However, since this is described as "very pale," "flesh coloured," and a dwarf grower, I feel confident that 'Jacques Cartier' is the correct name.

Jacques Cartier ('Marquise Boccella') [Macoboy says it's a Portland.] It seems that the great French explorer is to be dethroned. Someone has decided that the rose which we have all been admiring under his name is not the 1868 Moreau & Robert introduction, but an 1842 introduction from Desprez of Angers called 'Marquise Boccella'... the autumn blooms are especially abundant. Parentage: 'Baronne Prévost' x 'Portland Rose'.

('Jacques Cartier') Dickerson lists this under Damask Perpetuals and says the raiser is Moreau-Robert, 1868. Further, he states there is some confusion between this variety and the shorter 'Marquise de Boccella' [for which he has a separate entry, included in this page].
