Rosa godefroyae Carrière. Rev. Hort., [sér.6], 1886: 261.
Found in Iran by Pissart (1879), decribed and named R. godefroyae by Carriere, France (1886), distributed by the English nursery Paul & Son as 'Pissardii' and now in commerce as 'Nastarana'. Not identical to R. moschata var. nastarana Christ. 'Nastarana' in commerce is cluster-flowered while R. moschata var. Christ = R. pissarti Carr. has solitary flowers emitting directly from the cane and arranged in a spiral form - see Photos. Most later literature describes the plant introduced by Paul erroneously as R. moschata var. nastarana Christ .
