Two Roses introduced by Miss Lindsay prior to the Second World War probably fit into the Damask group. They are Rose de Resht and 'Rose d'Hivers'. The former may well prove to be the true 'Rose du Roi', as suggested by Brent Dickerson in The Garden for January 1989. The proof would be to acquire 'Panachee de Lyon', which is reported to be a striped sport from it. I found this unstable, liable to sport wholly to the red colouring, but could not compare it with the Resht Rose at the time, and have now lost it.
