The other three varieties [of Rosa odorata] (aside from the typical variety) have double to semi-double-petaled flowers, are found mainly in human-disturbed areas in the Yunnan province of China and are occasionally cultivated in other areas.
....Rosa odorata var. pseudindica (2n = 2x = 14; Jian et Al. 2010) has yellow to orange flowers and is distributed in the northwestern Yunnan province. ...

Fortune's Double Yellow (FDY) was also included in the chloroplast spacer sequence of this study, since it is usually considered a Miscellaneous Old garden Rose of uncertain ancestry (Cairns (ed.), 2000) that, like theChina and Tea Roses, was bred in China before being introduced to Europe...It has been speculated that this cultivar is a Tea Rose or has R. odorata var. gigantea influence (Dickerson, 2007). The location of FDY is not within the main group of Chinas, Teas, or other hybrids, but it has similarity coefficients ranging from 0.30-0.48 with the Teas and OG3 [R. odorata var. gigantea], so it does appear to have a close relationship with the Tea Type Roses. The chloroplast haplotype of FDY is another that is unique in this study based on its cpSSR number of 16, so no direct maternal connections can be presumed, though the main haplotypes matches that of the R. brunonii, R. multiflora var. cathayensis, and two R. odorata var. gigantea (OG1 & OG2) from this study. The SSR-based similarity levels of FDY with Br or MC1 are low though (0.17 and 0.22) and do not indicate a close relationship. The similarity between FDY and OG1 and OG2 are higher at 0.32 and 0.31, but this could simply reflect the fact that they may all be hybrids with another species in Section Synstylae if OG1 and OG2 are not true R. odorata var. gigantea specimens.

Fortune's Double Yellow ('Beauty of Glazenwood', 'Wang-Jang-Ve') Fortune, 1845. Hybrid Gigantea ? [Author cites information from many sources.] An entry of particular interest is from the Western Horticultural Review, which quoted Mr. Fortune secondhand... Discovered in the garden of a rich mandarin at Ningpo. It completely covered an old wall in the garden, and was in full bloom at the time of my visit; masses of glowing yellowish and salmon colored flowers hung down in the greates profusion... It is called by the Chinese the 'Wang-jang-ve,' or 'Yellow Rose.' They vary, however, a good deal in color; a circumstance which, in my opnion, adds not a little to the beauty and character of the plant.
