Bourbon Roses

A chance cross between Old Blush china and the Autumn Damask led to the first of the  Bourbon race. This occurred in 1817 on the Ile de Bourbon an island in the Indian ocean. Later it was hybridised further with Gallica and Damask roses. Most varieties are blessed with a good fragrance, recurrent flowering and refined foliage.
