The History of Mauritius, or the Isle of France, and the neighbouring islands (1801) p. 52
By Charles Grant de Vaux

The rose tree is so easily propagated, that hedges are formed of it; but its flower is not close and fragrant as those of Europe: there are many varieties of them, and among others, a small kind from China, which bears flowers throughout the year.

[This probably was the Rosa pusilla listed in 'A Catalogue of the Exotic Plants Cultivated in the Mauritius,
at the Botanic Garden, Monplaisir, Reduit, and other places', (1816) p. 16. The rose was later imported to England by Sweet and renamed R. Lawranceana.]

There appears to be an incorrect link between "centifolia nana" and 'Rouletii'.
