Also, Robert Buist uses the word "provins" for this sport of R. centifolia. Which can be confusing. Provins Roses are Gallicas. Provence Roses are Centifolias.
The term 'White Provins' / 'White Province' / 'White Provence' seems to have been attached to various roses over time. A white centifolia probably already existed in 1600.
