$7.99

Louis Philippe overcomes hopelessness; feeling love has passed you by. Hopelessness can be a very damaging emotion. Long term sadness can adversely affect the integrity of the heart. Louis Philippe helps an emotional change of attitude that can activate receptor sites and cardiovascular flow throughout the body. A feeling of warmth and security prevails. Surrender to the warmth.

According to Peter Beales, renowned rosarian, Louis Philippe's parentage is unknown. However, the white stripe threading through the loose, semi double cupped blooms, indicates China heritage for 1 parent. The exact rose is not yet known. The growth habits are hardy, easy to grow in southern climates with deep, crimson 2inch, lightly fragrant blooms. It is remondant, a repeat bloomer, from spring through the time of frost. If winter has a brief warming spell, it blooms again. The rose is disease resistant and drought tolerant. It grows wild in the Southern U.S., often found unattended in old cemeteries, a popular rose in the 1940s- 1960. As an original China rose, it probably grew wild in the warmer areas of China also.

It was a gift to Lorenzo Zavala, Texas minister to France in the 1830s.  Planted in a Lynchburg garden, near Houston, Texas, it became known in Texas as the Cracker rose. It was a favorite, soon growing in many gardens, used in southern recipes for rose petal sugar coated flowers at wedding, and an ingredient in rose syrup.

Louis Philippe is similar to Cramoisi Superieur rose, also introduced from France, and sometimes the 2 are confused. Louis Philippe has more variation in coloring of its blooms and is more angular in growth, usually 4 feet tall and 6 feet across.
