Does anyone know why 1664 is the year of the first mention? Was it a publication or a painting?

For years and years several roses have been confused under the term of Burgundy Pompon or Pompon de Bourgogne. Most of the descriptions describe one or more dwarf Centifolia roses with prickles. However, the rose for this HMF entry is a distinctly different rose with thin stems which are nearly free of prickles. The only name which unambiguouly refers to this dwarf nearly prickle free rose is Rosa parvifolia. It is illustrated in HMF photo 112316 as R. parvifolia from the Botanical Register, 1820, tab. 452. Today this rose should probably be called 'Parvifolia' for this cultivar is of unclear origin and is not clearly a Centifolia. Redoute illustrated this little rose with the name Rosa pomponia Burgundiaca, Le Pompon de Bourgogne. This is shown at HMF photo 5537. One of the Centifolia roses confused with this rose is illustrated by Redoute as Rosa pomponia and shown at HMF photo 4211.

Yes, and there is also some confusion of synonms with the 'Dijon Pompon'. It would be great if these could be sorted out!

Have you found a clear description or an illustration of the 'Dijon Pompon'?

When not in flower, this makes a very pretty, dense,healthy shrub,with tiny foliage.

Ther are not two forms of this rose , there are two diffrent roses which are sometimes
described wrong.
Pompon de Bourgogne is a small centifolia, about 1 meter high, just a smaller form of a centifolia with its typical thorns and flowers about 5 cm diameter.
Rosa centifolia parvifolia is nearly absolutly thornless, about 50- 60 cm high the flower`s diameter is maximum 2 cm and the whole shrub is absolut especialy because it grows very dense, nearly like a Buxus. While its not flowering nearly nobody imagines this little shrub to be a rose.
