Mme Georges Bruant (Hybrid Rugosa) [Rosa rugosa x Sombreuil]

Vick's Magazine June, 1888. p. 179

Another branch of the great Rose family has been started by the production of the variety here figured. A flower of R. rugusa fertilized by the pollen of Sombreuil produced seed from which was obtained the plant under consideration by M. BRUANT, of Poictiers, France. The plant is said to inherit the hardy constitution of the mother plant, and having foliage much like that of R. rugosa, while in flower it resembles a Tea; the flower is white, semi-double and fragrant, and is particularly handsome in bud.
