Grand Duke Jean of Luxem­bourg, born on 5 Janu­a­ry 1921 at Col­mar-Berg Cast­le, was a gre­at natu­re lover. The pre­ser­va­ti­on of fau­na and flo­ra was par­ti­cu­lar­ly important to him. He was the eighth Grand Duke of Luxem­bourg from 1964 to 2000.

The magni­ficent ‘Grand Duc Jean’ rose does not requi­re much main­ten­an­ce and is per­fect for plan­ting in natu­ral gar­dens. The pyra­mid-like clus­ters of sin­gle cher­ry red flowers resem­ble hydran­ge­as. The cent­re of the flower is white, and the yel­low sta­mens dif­fu­se a very light fra­gran­ce. This rose­bush flowers throughout the sum­mer and is very healt­hy. This rose was a gift to Grand Duke Jean from Annet­te Block and Clau­de Vion (pre­si­dent and secreta­ry of the non-pro­fit Lët­ze­bue­r­ger Rou­se­frënn) in 2010.
