Monsieur Tiller was found in
San Marcos by garden author Scott Ogden growing by a small wood frame home alongside Mrs.
Dudley Cross. The medium size Tea rose was covered with double blooms in carmine to violet
shades of red. This hardy rose is often covered with a profusion of blooms from spring
through fall. Introduced into commerce in 1891, it was the talk of the 1900 Paris
Exhibition. And named for L. Tiller, former head of the National School of Horticulture in
Versailles. He is hardy in zones 7 - 9.
