Rosa rapa Bosc (1821) and Rosa rapa staxon semipleno Thory (1819).
Wilson Lynes reclassifies Rosa rapa Bosc as Rosa carolina var. plena, the same as The Golly Rose. See References.
Modern Roses divides this rose into two distinct varieties, while HMF combines them as one. In Modern Roses, both are classified as deep pink Misc. OGR:
1. Turneps includes R. fraxinifolia Dum. Cours., R. x rapa Lindley, and Turgida. Before 1770.
2. 'Rose d'Amour' includes R. rapa Bosc, R. virginiana plena Rehder, and St. Mark's Rose. Cultivated in Europe since 1768.

According to Graham Thomas, 'Rose d'Orsay' can be distinguished from 'Rose d'Amour' by the pair of prickles it always has under each leaf.
