  • Origin of Name

    This rose is named after Taittinger's finest champagne. Their president, M Claude Taittinger, is a descendant of Thiabaut IV, Count of Champagne and Brie, who is reputed to have introduced R. gallica ‘Officinalis’ (The Apothecary's Rose) from Damascus on his return from the 7th Cruscade in 1250. He was a great lover of roses and celebrated them in poetry.
