Hybrid perpetual roses

This group was extremely popular in the late 19th century. In 1816 a seedling was raised from the cultivar 'Portlandica' and named 'Rose du Roi'. 'Rose du Roi' was then hybridised with Hybrid Chinas (Gallica × China rose) and Bourbons to produce the Hybrid Perpetuals. They are generally fast growing and prickly with dark green leaves. They are tall bushes, producing large clusters of mostly pink, white or occasionally crimson or mauve flowers.
