The 'Kazanlik' rose, too, had been a mystery to me for years. I had received no fewer than three distinct roses under this name: one was a Gallica, one turned out to be 'Ispahan', and a third was identical with another rose I had been given labelled 'Professeur Émile Perrot'. This proved to be the real rose from Kazanlik, Rosa damascena 'Trigintipetala', the rose grown in greater quantity than any other in Bulgaria for the production of "attar". It is a similar type to York and Lancaster, R. damascena 'Versicolor', with spindly growth up to 6 feet or so, soft light green leaves, and rather small flowers, loosely double, of soft pink. In spite of its name this rose, over here at least, seldom has as many as thirty petals.
Through the kindness of Professor V.M. Staicov of the Bulgarian State Agricultural Institute for the Investigation of Mediacal and Aromatic Plants, who kindly sent me both herbarium specimens and, later, living material of the roses grown at Kazanlik, I have been able to elucidate the matter. ...Rosa damascena. This appears to be almost if not quite identical with my R. damascena 'Trigintipetala'.
