The French Rose (Rosa gallica) is indigenous to France and Italy, and was among the earliest that were introduced to British gardens, having been taken to England in 1596.  It contains a large number of varieties, many of which are hardy and vigorous.  The flowers are rich in colour, and mostly well formed.  The following selection includes some of the most desirable kinds:
