I'm convinced this is the real Rosa x centifolia foliacea. I always wondered why Sangerhausen never had doubt about their specimen because the main feature, the long sepals are lacking. Can you tell me where I can get this special rose?

Wilhelm Keller wrotes in his catalogue from 1833 on page 38 about Pourpre de striés blanc: An image of this rose can be found in issue 4 of volume 6 of "Die Annalen der Blumisterei" from Reider under the altered name "Panzerea".

and Nickel lists it in his fourth and fifth issue of his book "Cultur, Bennenung und Beschreibung der Rosen" from 1845 on page 113 as "Purpurea albo striata alias R Panzerea"

Thanks Marita. Added the Nickels reference. Perhaps Jedmar might add the Keller one?
