I didn't submit this to the database -- someone must have done that on my behalf. I'm fine with that, except that this picture shows my 'Reine des Violettes' growing against the railing by the stairs on the back deck. I have "Nouveau Monde -- in commerce as" growing further up on the raised part of the deck.

Also, a note about this rose's information on the database. While what was sold by Vintage Gardens as 'Nouveau Monde' is the rose shown in Steve812's picture, that rose isn't the true 'Nouveau Monde'. The original rose by that name was a purple Gallica. The rose Vintage Gardens obtained from Europe is a large once-blooming pink Hybrid China. I was the only person posting pictures of this rose on HelpMeFind, and the admins there decided to create a new file for the imposter that was sold under that name -- "Nouveau Monde -- in commerce as" -- for the sake of accuracy. It's a fine plant, even if it's not the original. And I'm ecstatic that someone else has it -- so far, that makes only five I know of in the US, but surely there are more.
