The correct name of this rose is spelt 'Ombrée de Riga', a Gallica cross bred before 1834. "Shady Riga" in other words. See A.A. Galichenko,

The referred article translates the rose as 'Ombre de Riga'. We have followed the text, even if Ombrée might be a more correct translation.

Yes, that's where you were misled. Galichenko's article cited by me reproduces the original 1834 data. As I recall, the conventions of rose naming privilege the earliest given name. In this case we have it in the breeder's own handwriting: Ombrée de Riga. It is not a translation. It is a correct transcription.
