The white and yellow China Rose, the sweet scented hybrid, Hamon, and Blairii, were entirely destroyed even in Hampshire

The phrase "the sweet scented hybrid" refers to Hamon. I.e., the sweet scented hybrid (Hamon),

This is an example of the ambiguity of commas: they may separate items in a list, and they may be used in place of parentheses. They are confusing when used in both ways in the same sentence.

Okay, I'm wondering about the variety of photos I see here. The 'Odorata' I grow, from two sources, has pink-tinged white blooms, not too double, of modest dimensions, cupped. The photos posted by the Museo della Rosa Antica show a variety that, compared to my rose, has a yellow tinge, is more double, and has rolled-back petals. The South African 'Hume's Blush' candidate is decidedly pinker than my rose. I don't make any claims for the authenticity of any of these varieties, but wished to point out that they look like different kinds.
P.S. My variety grows larger than the size given in the description, about 4' x 3' growing in poorish conditions.
