Address by Clair Martin III “Hunting Old Roses in California”:
I think this is the one you’re calling 'Duchess of Sutherland', which is a very important, very early Hybrid perpetual. In actuality a hybrid China, and I’ll have to define what I call a hybrid China. It’s exactly what William Paul calls a hybrid China. Any European rose crossed with the China rose that really in the beginning were once blooming. They only bloomed in spring. This is what happens, the 'Duchess of Sutherland' is one of those roses, that not only does she bloom in spring, but she often repeats her bloom again. So its one of the roses that probably the European hybridizer, like Laffay and those people used to make their jump from once blooming roses to repeat blooming roses, Hybrid Perpetuals.

This group gradually became popular, and from 1860 until 1890 were by far the most popular garden roses.
