The hybrid rose obtained in the 17th Century in Holland is also called the Provence rose, Cabbage rose or May rose.
Sadly the history of these scented beauties is not well documented. This is why we intend to make history again by bringing the most beautiful garden roses to the market.
As Rhea Worrell mentions in her article: "Centifolia: The Hundred-Petalled Rose", The blooms of Rosa centifolia, the Cabbage Rose, are the largest and fullest of any rose. Developed by Dutch breeders in the 1600 to 1800's from a clutch of other rose strains, the Centifolias possess a beautiful fragrance and an elegant, but easy-going manner, a kind of noblesse oblige."
"Centifolia" means: "A fragrant species of rose having large numbers of petals". "Cent" actually means One Hundred... So this means that the "Centifolia Rose" has One hundred petals...
As it also has a lovely fragrance and it is one of its most fascinating features, we decided to name our roses "Scentifolia".
Scent = Fragrance
Cent = 100 petals
You get the idea.
However, we understand that "Scentifolia" can be a difficult name to memorize, write and even pronounce... So we decided to name our roses "Breathtaking Roses by Scentifolia"
Are they truly "Breathtaking"?
Let us amaze you. Place your order and decide for yourself.
