Page 38: Parentage unknown. ('Pope Pius IX') Taller than the Gallica norm, arching branches. Flowers: small, pink with washes and tones of mauve and violet, fragrant. Thought to be related to Rosa cinnamomea. Agathe was the heroine of Weber's immensely popular opera of 1821, Der Freischütz, and several roses were named after her around that time.
Page 163: [Photo] 'Empress Josephine' (Rosa francofurtana, R. turbinata, 'Frankfurt Rose'). Gallica. The flowers are large for an Old Garden Rose... light and deep pink, with shadings and veinings of mauve and violet... not much fragrance... short and compact... parents might have been R. gallica and R. cinnamomea.

Parentage unknown. Flowers: soft pink, usually borne in clusters, quartered, fragrant. Grows to about 5 ft. Thorny, possibly indicating the influence of the Damask Rose in its breeding. Probably introduced around the same time as 'Agathe'.
