'Agnes' rose References
Article (magazine)  (2023)  
‘Agnes’ has a citrus-like green scent, and almost no R. foetida-like unpleasant odor in its flowers. The major scent components are caryophyllene and α-farnesene. Caryophyllene is thought to be inherited from R. foetida f. persiana and α-farnesene is thought to be inherited from R. rugosa. Fatty acid derivatives, the characteristic scent components of R. foetida were not detected in this cultivar.

‘Agnes’. Hybrid rugosa. This rose is best described as amber, although in certain weather the blooms can take on hints of pink, as seen in the picture. The flowers are large, double and nicely scented and come in small clusters. Foliage is rich green, glossy and quilted on a vigorous, healthy bush. It is once-flowering only but occasionally produces another flower or two through the season. It was bred by Saunders of Canada and introduced in 1900. (Rosa rugosa x R. foetida perseana).

‘Agnès’: Hybride de Rugosa - jaune pâle. Il existe peu de rosiers rugueux jaunes, et moins encore de remarquables, mais celui-ci est une réussite. …feuillage, typique du groupe, et vert franc et plissé. C’est un rosier vigoureux qui ne fleurit en principe qu’une fois en mai-juin, mais qu’un bel automne peut fort bien inciter à refleurir. Saunders, Canada, 1900. Rosa rugosa x Rosa foetida persiana.
