Jacques Dalechamps, Jean Des Moulins – 1615

Le Rose jaune ou doree est ainsi nommee à cause de sa couleur. Elle a la fleur & la couleur d’autre façon que les autres: car ses fueilles son petites, rondes, de couleur de vert-brun, fort decoupees; dont les pointes sont quasi poignantes. Ses branches sont bien garnies d’espines, la fleur est doree ou jaune, semblable aux autres quant au reste, sinon qu’elle n’est pas double comme celles de jardin; mais n’a que cinq fueilles. Elle a une odeur fort mal-plaisante, don’t nature a eu grand tort d’avoir privé une si belle fleur de l’odeur qu’elle devoit avoir comme les autres Roses ; car si elle sentoit bon, elle ne tien droit pas le dernier rang entre les belles fleurs. Il en croist en Italie, & despuis quelques temps en çà on en commence à planter au jardins.

Gardeners' Chronicle. 43: 408 (June 20, 1908)
Rosa lutea.-In June, 1906, Mr. AW Sutton, FLS, shown before the Committee dried specimens of a yellow Rose who had been named at Kew Rosa Eglanteria (= R. lutea) from Baalbec. Mr. Sutton also obtained through a lady missionary at Baalbec some pods and shoots of this Rose, but they were dead when they arrived. Later, however, he received other seeds, from which three plants had been reared, and which were now flowering in his garden. He exhibited a flower of a beautiful clear yellow color, measuring 3 inches in diameter. A full account of the history of this plant, which Colonel PRAIN thought when he saw the dried specimens from Baalbec to be identical with the Indian Rose Eglanteria, is given in the Gardeners' Chronicle, July, 1906.
