Notes:
R. roxburghii f. normalis Rehder & E.H. Wilson (1916). The single form of R. roxburghii was collected and introduced to the West several decades after the double form ("Chestnut rose", R. roxburghii f. roxburghii). The St. Petersburg Botanical Garden's great plant collector, Carl Johann (Karl Ivanovich) Maximowicz, found it in Japan, and collections in China followed. It was finally described to the satisfaction of taxonomists in 1915 when the confusing and ambiguous name "Rosa microphylla" was jettisoned for good.
