This small but important Group of Roses have a rather confused and muddy ancestry. For many years Portland Roses were considered to be an ancient chance cross between Rosa chinensis semperflorens (Slater's Crimson China) and Rosa damascena bifera. Respected Rosarian Peter Beales wrote in his definitive work "Classic Roses":- I am of the opinion that no China Rose was in any way involved in this scattering of pollen. Not surprisingly Peter has been proved right as DNA tests have shown that the Portland Roses have no Chinese Ancestry and in fact inherit their good looks, fine fragrance and remontant habit from the Damask and Gallica.
