[From the article "Italian Rose Breeders" by Stelvio Coggiatti:]
About 1830, Giuseppe Manetti, then Director of the Monza Royal Villa, crossed a Tea rose with a Noisette, and obtained a vigorous bush with straight reddish branches, pointed leaves and semi-double, pale pink flowers. An English rose expert, Thomas Rivers, realized the possibilities offered by this hybrid as a rootstock; he was proved right, since even at present 'Manettii' is widely used for this purpose.
