Pâquerette - a historic rose

    Newer Older

    The Rose Garden at The Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California, is a large and impressive collection covering 3.5 acres (1.42 hectares). I wandered off onto a side path in the garden and discovered a wonderful collection of historic roses, many dating back to the nineteenth century. This rose is Pâquerette, propagated by Lyon (France) nurseryman B. J. Guillot from Chinese stock and introduced into European commerce in 1875. It is considered to have been the first Polyantha (derived from the Greek word meaning “many flowered”) rose.
