These are hybrids derived from a cross between R. moschata and 'Parson's Pink' ('Old Blush') which produced the cultivar, 'Champney's Pink Cluster'. The cross was performed by John Champney from Charleston, S Carolina, USA, in 1802 and seed of the new cultivar was raised by Philippe Noisette, also of Charleston, to produce some Noisette cultivars. Other seedlings have been raised since and crosses made with 'Park's Yellow China' to produce the Tea Noisette roses. They added new colour, especially yellow, to the climbing roses of their day.
