Sapho...est un enfant de la célèbre roseraie Vibert, dont le successeur actuel et M. Moreau-Robert, auquel nous sommes redevables d'un grand nombre de bonnes variétés de roses. Sapho, aux inflorescences corymbifères, aux fleurs moyennes ou presque grandes, doubles, blanches, fait partie de la section des rosiers de Portland, dits aussi rosiers à floraison perpétuelle, sorte de forme du rosier de Damas, qui passe pour avoir été obtenue dans le comte de Portland (Angleterre), vers 1800.

In "Remarks on French and English Rose Catalogues": ..The great fault...with the French Rose-growers is their minute division of some families of Roses into groups...Monsieur Vibert, one of the oldest Rose-growers in France, has carried this to the greatest extent....I wish most to call the attention of Rose-growers to...the (I think) unnecessary dividing of Autumnal Roses. Monsier Vibert has ---Perpetuals First Division, Second Division. The first includes the Roses known in England as Perpetual Damask Roses - a name appropriate enough; the second includes Roses which he professes to have raised from a very old autumnal blooming Rose called Belle de Trianon; their names are as follows: Antigone, Adele Mauzé, Amandine, Amanda Patenotte, Blanche Vibert, Comte de Derby, Crillon, Delphine Gay, Duc de Devonshire, Jasine Hariet, Léone de Leroy, Lesbie, Louise Bordillon, Niobé, Olivier de Serres, Petite Marie, Psyche, Sapho, Sidonie, Trianon Double, and Yolande d'Aragon.
