Moss roses

This is the name given to roses that have arisen as sports with the sepals, hip and flower stalk having moss-like growth. They have been derived from a mossy sport of R. ×centifolia (pre-1720), and a mossy sport of the Autumn Damask, R. damascena (first recorded in 1835). In the late 19th century breeding merged the two lines.
