Louis Philippe

1834

The flowers are double, deep crimson with a touch of blush at the center and like all old Chinas exhibits an occasional white streak through the petals. This rose is often confused with ‘Cramoisi Superieur’. The only differences we can detect is that ‘Louis Philippe’ is more compact and the color varies.

Emily de Zavala, wife of Lorenzo de Zavala, Mexican minister to France, 1834-35, loved the roses at King Louis Philippe's court.  The de Zavalas came to Texas in 1835 to support the Texas Revolution.  On their land across from the San Jacinto Battleground, Mrs. de Zavala grew roses including 'Louis Philippe,' which became known as the "Zavala rose."
