Abstract

Just what prompted Guillot fils of Lyon-Montplaisir, France, to name a pink· rose, introduced in 1867, La France may never be known. Subsequent history has shown that this rose was the first Hybrid Tea. It was grown from a seed of Mme. Bravy, a creamy white tea, fertilized by Victor Verdier a bright rose-colored Hybrid Perpetual. Since the French rosarians have originated the first variety that became the progenitor of most of the major classes of modern roses, no better name could have been found for the first Hybrid Tea. Around the turn of the twentieth century, this class of roses became the most popular of the modern roses, and its popularity has not diminished in the ensuing years.
