Extract from Sweet, 18390, which shows China as place of origin for R. indica odorata v. flavescens.

In the terminology of the time, a seedling was considered to be a "variety" of the parent. And thus of the same "nationality". Unless the seedling was an obvious hybrid.

Also, Loudon (Hortus Britannicus, p. 211. 1830) gave 1821 as the date of introduction for 'flavescens Hort.'
