Here is a picture of 'Mme Jules Bouché', a hybrid tea from 1911, bred
by Croibier. The rose is one of the strongest growers among my older
hybrid teas, a vigorous beauty. Brent Dickerson cites the Journal de
Roses (1877-1914), describing the rose as, "vigorous, branches slender
and strong, bud very long, flower large, full, well formed, petals of
great substance, folding back at expansion." The rose is useful for
cutting, elegant and beautiful in its subtle shades of white. N. F.
Miller believed the rose smelled like violets. This rose is a true
gem from old, perhaps lost times.
