Roses based on the cultivar 'Portlandica' and named after the second Duchess of Portland. The original was a hybrid between the Autumn Damask and R. gallica 'Officinalis' and Portlands have been known since 1792. They are similar to Gallica roses and form late-flowering, compact bushes just over 1 m tall and with strong flower colours. They were crossed with Chinas to produce the forerunners of the Hybrid Perpetual.
