Pietro Andrea Mattioli's 'De plantis epitome utilissima Petri Andreae Matthioli' (Francofurti ad Moenum, 1586) says on page 98,

"Domesticae et si plura Plinio sint genera, nostra tamen euo tria tantum in usum venerunt videlicet puniceum, album, et quod carnis colorem refert. In albo genere ea est admodu ordorata, qua Moschetam, et Damascenam Itali vocant."

I read this as, roughly,

There are garden roses, and if in Pliny's age there were more, in our age only three matter: the crimson, the white, and the flesh colored. In the white (alba) class is a very fragrant rose, called the Musk and the Damask by the Italians.

(Mattioli was an Italian physician who died nine years before the book was published, so this statement dates from earlier, probably the 1560s, when he was not in Italy.)

This rose is shown to be growing at Ruston's in Australia. Seeing as it is here, does anyone know if it's available anywhere else?
