Any of a group of somewhat remontant roses bred from 'The Portland Rose, ' which is presumed to have Gallica, Autumn Damask, and perhaps China in its parentage. They are typically short and upright, have a fine Damask scent, and bloom at least twice a year. Several are nearly perfectly quartered including Rose de Rescht and Compte de Chambord. While the group was quickly overshadowed by the Bourbons, it was to be influential long after by parenting the Hybrid Perpetuals.[3
