Comment/Acknowledgements: Rosa x alba is an old hybrid between Rosa canina s.l. and some of the ‘ancient’ roses, probably Rosa damascene. Very polymorphic, with many, sometimes local, garden froms. Planted as ornamental or rarely for perfume production.

Cultivated in many countries for the extraction of oil (otto, attar). Flowers are also used in fevers and for palpitation of heart (Kirtikar & Basu, Ind. Med. Pl. 2: 982. 1918).
