(Gallica) 'Rosa gallica versicolour' A striking and very old rose, the semi-double blooms being large with splashes of pink and white on a crimson background. Bushy. Said to be named after Fair Rosamund, mistress of Henry II. 12th century.

Unique to us in the UK. (Damask) 'Rosa damascena versicolor' Blush white flowers, striped or mottled with pink. Needs very good soil to do well. More a collector's piece than of real garden merit.
