Abstract

The year 1853 stands as a milestone in the progress of rose development, for in that year Roussel of France introduced General Jacqueminot to the world. Although it was introduced over 88 years ago, it is still one of the most popular roses of its class. The ordinary course of any one variety is generally far less than this. The Hybrid Perpetual group of roses, to which General Jack belongs, dates from the turn of the nineteenth century. Two of the most important progenitors of the group were introduced about 1830. The year 1837 is usually given as the year of introduction of the first true Hybrid Perpetual. Considering this date, one realizes that Roussel's variety was one of the first of its class.
