Billy Teabag reports: The slight asymmetry seen on the receptacle is a common characteristic of "Comtesse Riza du Parc (in commerce as, in Australia)".
....It is an angular and ungainly rose - a very prickly one too, with mean prickles right up to the bracts just beneath the bud. The receptacles are invariably constricted at the top - and it likes to make a large hip full of seeds for every untrimmed bloom.
