We are shown as selling this rose as "Belfield". Although we sell "Belfield" we consider the R. Indica Semperflorens ex Fineschi/Cavriglia as being a better example

The buniga mawur (rosa semperflorens, Curtis, No. 284), is small, and of a deep crimson colour. Its scent is delicate, and by no means so rich as that yielded by roses of our climate.
