Rose Listing Omission

R. rugosa variegata

I saw a variegated form of R. rugosa in Trevor Griffith's Book of Classic Old Roses (1986); I don't know if this might already be listed on HMF under a different name-- I thought I might check into it. I took a photo from the book that I could post. It is a typical-looking single rugosa but with some leaf variegation.

I don’t think we did have it listed Sambolingo. So I have added it as ‘Variegata (rugosa, unknown, before 1986)’. Beyond looking in Trevor’s books, I haven’t searched for other references. (I’d spend half the day ploughing through all the other Variegatas). I can’t help thinking this might have been a R. Rugosa typica / Scabrosa type of rose with some sort of mineral deficiency like Magnesium.
