'Oeillet de St Arquey' is a found rose which is probably identical to 'Fimbriata' (' à pétales frangés) by Jacques (1827), and not to Prevost's Rosa serratipetala (1818) (see).
Recent genetic analysis has shown that "Serratipetala" in commerce is a sport of 'Cramoisi Superieur'. - see References. According to Jacques, however, it is a seedling of Hume's Blush.
Compare also with 'Bella di Monza'.

Ida Sharp of Rose Hill Garden says this rose was found in France in 1912. It is a unique specimen plant bearing tiny red flowers edged in pink. The blooms are serrated on the edges...
Walter Branchi says Serratipetala has brilliant dark red flowers with a pink center... synonyms for this rose are "Fimbriata à Pétales Frangés", "Rose Oeillet de Saint-Arquey", "Oeillet de Saint-Arquey"...
