Besides the officinal semi-double Rosa officinalis, which is still cultivated in Provins and which is said to distinguish itself by a very agreeable fragrance, there are 3 other main groups [of Rosa gallica]:
a) Seraglio or Sultan Roses (Rosa Maheka)....[see].
b) Velvet Roses (Rosa holosericea) ...[see]
c) Bishop roses have almost completely disappeared from gardens and distinguish themselves from the prior two in that they are darker towards the edges but lighter in the center. Famous were once König von Persien [Roi de Perse] and Purpurmantel [Manteau pourpre]. We haven't seen any appreciables in latest times, if we do not want to include Latour d'Auvergne, Meyerbeer, Pierre Janssens and Triomphe des écarlates herein.
