Mondial Roses...Hybridized themselves 'Antonella'...

1767 The Edinburgh Botanic Garden sent a man to North America to collect new and unknown plants. He brought back a strong, vigorous rose which soon attracted the attention of gardeners in Ayrshire. At first it was called the 'Orangefield Rose' but this was later changed to the 'Ayrshire Rose'. This rose was unrelated to the true Ayrshires, which came later, for, in spite of conflicting reports, it seems clear that this was a hybrid of Rosa setigera.
circa 1830 Scottish gardeners like Brown of Perth, Martin of Dundee, and Robert Austin of Glasgow began hybridizing with these roses which were given the collective name of 'Ayrshire Roses'. There were about 60 varieties in all, and all were crosses between R. arvensis and other contemporary roses, although some were just chance seedlings; not much is known about them today since very few of them still exist. They were mostly white to pink, double, with little or no scent, but the growth was strong and hardy and they were used as the climbers of their day.
