In 1926 Dr Hurst raised from open-pollinated seed from Kew a seedling of R. roxburghii which was subsequently named 'Coryana' in 1939. ... The flowers are borne with a horizontal poise as in R. macrophylla and are of rich dark pink with yellow stamens: they open wide and flat.

Chinese roses were brought to Japan a long time ago. It is said that a kind of rose called 'Koushin' in Japanese had already arrived by the Heian era (794-1192 A.D.), so, presumably, it crossed the ocean ..

Rosa roxburghii: the species, its forms and hybrids
Graham Stuart Thomas
During his experimental work with the parentage of roses at Cambridge in the second quarter of this century, Dr C.C. Hurst raised seedlings of this cross [micrugosa], one of which was named R. x micrugosa 'Alba'. Apart from being of rather more upright habit, it is in other respects a replica of the original but of important garden value because the white flowers are produced not only at midsummer, but onwards throughout the growing season. They are, moreover, very fragrant. This might prove to to be a fertile parent and thus bring both species into today's hybrids. They would be very hardy.

...(The prince evidently knew this rose, although then misnamed Rosa turca or Rosa turkestanica, because about 1895 he presented a plant to Henri Correvon, the Swiss gardener who, coincidentally, praised Daisy Hill Nursery for its unequalled collections.)

The type of Rosa xanthina Lindl. was a rose with double or semi-double flowers obtained from cultivation in China, where it had been grown in gardens for a long period before it became known to Westerners. When the single-flowered form was discovered it was at first confused with Rosa primula Boulenger under the name Rosa xanthina forma normalis and later separated as Rosa xanthina forma spontanea.
