The Provence, Cabbage, or Hundred-leaved Rose (Rosa centifolia) was first introduced to England in 1596, from that district in France from which it derives its name, but it is originally a native of the Caucasus. This section contains some of the finest globular flowers, and many fine hybrids have been raised between it and Rosa gallica. The flowers are very sweet-scented, and it has always been a popular class of summer blooming Roses. This section is used extensively for making Rose water.
The plants require a rich soil, and rather close pruning as a rule. [...] There is a class of miniature or Pompone Roses belonging to this section, which are very dwarf, and are suitable for edgings or small beds. The best of them are the White Burgundy and the Dwarf Burgundy, a deep red.

From the uxurious manner in which the Romans lived in this country for many ages, and from their habit of wearing wreaths of roses at their banquets, it is more than probable that they introduced many kinds of their own roses into the gardens which they formed in this island. The principal variety of the Provence rose are the Common, Scarlet, Blush, White, Rose de Meaux, Pompone, Rose de Rheims, Childing’s Blandford, Rose of St. Francis, Shailer’s...

On en connaît plusieurs variétés, indépendamment de celles mentionnées dans l'article précédent, ou du moins elles sont présentées comme telles par les jardiniers. Les fleurs en sont plus ou moins grandes; mais leur identité avec notre rosier n'est pas encore bien constatée.^
