Penzance Hybrids
[From Climbing Roses, by Stephen Scanniello, p. 15:) In the 1890s an English judge, Lord Penzance, created a number of eglantine hybrids… the Penzance hybrids… Lord Penzance first exhibited them at Kew Gardens in 1895. The sixteen hybrids, thirteen of which he named after characters in the novels of Sir Walter Scott, had a wider range of colors and more vigor than the wild eglantines; some retained more of the wonderful scented foliage than others.
