Description

Stipple engraving showing a bunch of flowers consisting of yellow Austrian briars (Rosa foetida) (?) and pink China roses (Rosa chinensis), with two butterflies fluttering about. The author suggests that Redouté mistook Rosa chinensis for Rosa indica.

The caption reads in the original French: Variétés de Rose Jaune et de Rose du Bengale — Rosa lutea & Rosa indica (var.).
