Rosarum Monographia
(1820)  Page(s) 115.  
To this species [Rosa arvensis] the Ayrshire Rose of the gardens is undoubtedly to be referred, as has already been done by Dr. Sims. Of this plant, however, there are two sorts; the one sold in the nurseries about London, and cultivated by Mr. Sabine, I suppose is to be considered the real kind; and, as I have just observed, is a variety of arvensis; the other, which is cultivated at Kew, is sempervirens, from which it does not appear to differ in any respect. This has been considered as the real Ayrshire and published as such under the name of capreolata in the Edinburgh Philosophical Journal, by Mr. Neill, who assures us that it received its name from having been first raised at Loudon Castle, Ayrshire, from heps imported from N. America. Without attempting to dispute the accuracy of this, I must observe, that if the seeds were brought from America, they were carried thither originally from Europe.

R. unguiculata. ....This has much the appearance of the last [R. damascena], but may be distinguished by its sepals not being reflexed at any period, the flowers fully double, and the petals very large, whence the name of Cabbage Rose, by which t is usually known. Its fruit is either oblong or roundish; but never elongated. From gallica it may be told by its flowers being cernuous, and by the larger size of its prickles, with a more robust habit. It is well known that these plants are usually propagated by inlaying; but it is somewhat curious that, although the layers of R. damascena strike root readily, those of centifolia and gallica do not. .....I place its native country in Asia, because it has been found wild by Bieberstein, with double flowers, on the eastern side of Mount Caucasus, whither it is not likely to have escaped from a garden. ...The flowers of this are chiefly used for obtaining distiulled Rose water; those of gallica for drying.
