The origins of "Agatha incarnata" are unknown. It is probably a hybrid variety of Gallica and Damask, coming from Holland. Guerrapain notes it in his Almanach from 1811 onwards. It was probably in the collection of the empress Joséphine, at Malmaison and was painted by Redouté under the name Rosa gallica "agatha incarnata", in French, "L'Agathe carnée".

...in 1823, Hardy, the chief gardener of Luxembourg, bred a new gallica which he called "Agathe rose". Boitard (1836" gave following description of it: "medium size blooms, very pale pink. It resembles Marie Louise, but is of a darker tone". This variety seems...extinct.
Currently, two nurseries...offer a "Agathe rose" in sale....However, the crimson bloom does not correspond to the above description. Besides, no public collection possesses this variety.
