The description says "pink and yellow". But as all the photos show, this rose is white.

White is the typical color of the Scotch rose, but color variants turn up ... or so I've read.

Sabine (1822) gave an account of the origin of the first double Scotch roses in assorted colors.

I am indebted to Mr. ROBERT BROWN, one of the partners of the firm at the above period, for the following account of their origin. In the year 1793, he and his brother transplanted some of the wild Scotch Roses from the Hill of Kinnoul, in the neighbourhood of Perth, into their nursery garden: one of these bore flowers slightly tinged with red, from which a plant was raised, whose flowers exhibited a monstrosity, appearing as if one or two flowers came from one bud, which was a little tinged with red; these produced seed, from whence some semi-double flowering plants were obtained; and by continuing a selection of seed, and thus raising new plants, they in 1802 and 1803, had eight* good double varieties to dispose of; of these they subsequently increased the number, and from the stock in the Perth garden the nurseries both of Scotland and England were first supplied.

So this rose is very intriguing to me, as a tetraploid, with some limited rebloom genes. I kind of feel like DNA testing is in order to find out if it is in the background of fedtschenkoana and Harison's Yellow and not the other way around.

You know? I think ancient civilization sometimes discovers these things and then is given a lot of excess credit. Then we watch Ancient Aliens shows on TV and think our distant ancestors were geniuses. Nah, we are still building McDonalds and electing Donald Trump today. A lot of great thing are pretty much accidental.

No offense to anyone's political views. Donald Trump is plenty of fun to watch on TV. Hillary is a coockoo bird, too anyway.

In Dutch, this rose is called: Duinroos.
Can this be added to the list of names?
Thank You.
