Jean Soupert (1834-1910)
Jean Soupert, born on 20 February 1834 in Dommeldange and died on 17 July 1910 in Limpertsberg, was a grower of roses.
With Pierre Notting, also a nursery grower at Constantin Wilhelm in Luxembourg-Clausen, Jean Soupert launched, in 1855, their own new rose business, “Soupert & Notting” in Luxembourg-Limpertsberg.
From 1856, the new roses developed: “Tour de Malakoff”, “La Noblesse” and “Duc de Constantine” (1857), achieved great success. Of the numerous medals won at international competitions in France, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy, United Kingdom, and the United States of America, 130 have been preserved in the numismatic section of the National Museum of History and Art in Luxembourg.
