The third variety is also fragrant crimson with 33 petals and short and weak stem. It is mainly used for making bouquets, garlands and wreaths. This variety has become naturalized and can be termed as the most indigenous because of its wide cultivation.

The most popular rose for use in garland making and in worship is 'Rose Edouard' which is grown on a field scale in the delta of the river Cauvery in the extreme south of the country, but the cultivation of this variety extends up to the northern plains where apart from use in temples and garland making, it is used for the extraction of rose oil. Another use is its utilization as a stock for budding roses especially for plants to be grown in pots......Out of the desert sands of Rajasthan near the holy town of Pushkar, we have large areas grown under Gruss an Teplitz. The flowers are dried and sent on a daily basis to Mecca, the holiest of Muslim cities.
p127. Girija Viraraghavan. History of the Rose in India and Indian Rose Products.
Coming now to rose products, which are distinctively Indian, roses are the basis of many rose formulations - cosmetic, medicinal and dietary. In many areas of north India, especially where the soil is rich and the water abundant, like Pushkar in Rajasthan, and parts of Uttar Pradesh, Rosa damascena and also 'Rose Edouard' are grown on a commercial scale, both for distilling rose oil and rose water. Another heritage rose widely grown is Gruss an Teplitz.
