Cultivated in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean Region for centuries, these roses are noted for their strong "musky" fragrance. They have long, arching canes and flowers in colors of white or pink. In the early summer, they bear single or double flowers and bloom just once per year. They resemble giant flowered floribundas.

Typical cultivars include 'Penelope' and 'Pink Prosperity'.
