I am glad to inform the many fans of this rose that, after many years of research, the mistery of Variegata di Bologna is finally solved. I found the 1909 -1910 catalogue of Stabilimento Gaetano Bonfiglioli & Figlio where the rose was presented as “NOVITA DEL 1909” of the nursery. The lineage is reported (unknown varietà di moscata x Pride of Reigate) and so this rose is not a sport. Its tendency to reverte is certainly due to the fact that one of the parent (Pride of Reigate) is a sport of Comtesse d’Oxford. I wish to thank Biblioteca Internazionale La Vigna, Vicenza, Italy, owner of the Catalogue, for the great help.

Wonderful Bruna. That 1909 reference has solved a long standing puzzle.
