Henry Charles Andrews' 1810 Portrait of Rosa Indica odorata from Volume 2 of his Roses Or A Monograph On The Genus Rosa, issued in parts from 1804 to 1828. This coloured figure and description was first issued in 1810 and appears to be the earliest portrait of the rose referred to today as 'Hume's Blush'. Descriptive text reads: ROSA Indica odorata, Sweet-scented Indian Rose. CHARACTER SPECIFICUS. Rosa germinibus globosis; pedunculis laeviter hispidis, glabris, nitidis ; saepeflorens; foliosis; oblongis, acutis, dentatis, glabris, nitidis ; caule viridi, nitido; spinis sparsis. SPECIFIC CHARACTER. ROSE with round seed-buds ; peduncles slightly hispid, smooth, and shining ; often flowering ; leaflets oblong, pointed, toothed, smooth, and shining; stem green and shining; thorns scattered. THIS elegant plant was imported from the East Indies in 1809 by Sir A. Hume, Bart, and is a great acquisition to the British gardens ; being one of the ever-blooming species, with the addition of an agreeable scent, which very few China roses possess; it is nearest allied to the Rosa lndica ['Rosa Indica' is Andrews' name for the rose we know today as 'Parsons' Pink', 'Old Blush' etc] but still of a paler colour when in full bloom, and sometimes nearly white: yet the under side of the outer petals is strongly marked with a deep purply red, which gives it, in the bud state, an appearance of being a high-coloured rose. We believe it has not as yet ripened its seed with us, but may be increased by cuttings. Our figure was drawn from a fine plant in the nursery of Messrs. Colville.
