(top) Rose centifolia in cabbage leaves or lettucethis "centifolia" also known under the names "bullata, bullata cabbage rose" ... It was discovered by Duhamel in 1801 and introduced in 1811 by Mr. Du Pont in the gardens of Josephine de Beauharnais. At the same time, PJ Redouté painted a rose he called "Hundred-leaf lettuce leaves." The one shown above, painted by Edouard Maubert, highlights the same characteristics: "an undulating foliage, bypassed, and a large scale." Collection Jules Gravereaux.

The rose "Marguerite Dombrain" would refer to the daughter of the Reverend Father Dombrain, pink French ambassador in England. It was obtained by Eugene Verdiereldest son in 1865. Although Mr. Hérincq in the magazine "the French horticulturist" of that year, stated that "this variety is dedicated to the collections of the most exigent fans," Today we do not find it anywhere, either in nurseries or in rose garden.
