Miss Lawrance's Rose was the parent of a group of miniatures called Fairy Roses, of which Rivers had some sixteen varieties by 1837. These and other miniature derivatives of R. chinensis were sometimes known collectively in gardens as R. lawranceana or R. laurentiae.

Rosa Lawrenceana is interesting in the way that it is said to be the parent of many of our garden Polyantha Roses, but beyond that is of little value in the garden. Rouletti, the little dwarf Rose so highly prized for rockeries, is also said to be one of its offspring, but one would not recognise it as such. Pumila is probably a sport from this Rose. It has rather larger flowers and stronger growth, and I consider it a very fine thing indeed.
