Please add to References. From: Bulletin de Societe Nationale d'Acclimation de France, Series 4, Volume 11, 1885, p. 106-107.

"Rosa Microphylla has several varieties: a variety with single flowers, pink, that Phonzo-Zoufou marks under the name of "Kin Ossi." Doctor Savatier found it grown in Tokyo, in the garden of Oya Kouyen. Another variety with double flowers bears the name of "Sansio bara," according to Phonzo-Zoufou.

Single Kin Ossi. Double Sansio bara..... Blindly, without understanding, I have added the reference.

I'm writing an extensive article about the microphylla family. There is a lot of contradictory information in print. There is a source from The City of Sakura Rose Garden with an article entitled "Wild Roses of Japan," by Yuki Mikanagi, Ph. D. In it he refers to the rose as R. hirtula (Regel) Nakai referencing a Japanese publication, Bot. Mag. Tokyo 34:14 (1920). I have found a source by Nakai (Japanese botanist) and in it, if I'm reading the Latin correctly, he refers to hirtula as "Sansho-bara." Very confusing.

However, the first source I quoted was written in 1885 and would seem to have precedence. I'd love to be able to correspond with someone from Japan.

Produces hips. One OP seedling so far. Smaller in diameter and more petals than Rouletii.

I have added your comments to the main page.
Your photo seems to be a little mottled. Has anyone considered
Bicolor (lawrenciana, Laffay, 1836) or
Jenny (Lawrencia, Unknown, 1836)

Completely black spot free in my no-spray GA garden. Color fades some in extreme heat if left on the bush. Lots of blooms! Outstanding new variety!
