Souvenir du Dr Jamain. Rich fragrance, velvet texture. Bred by Lacharme, France 1865, a seedling from ‘Charles Lefebvre’. A superb rose if kept away from scorching sun, which it hates. Flowers are a rich ruby-red and, although semi-double, open to a cupped shape, sometimes showing off the anthers to good effect. Foliage is dark green and the stems are relatively thornless. Good, fertile soil and a spot away from the heat of the afternoon sun and there is a tendency towards powdery mildew.
