Another Chinese Rose - the Cherokee Rose - the date of whose introduction into this country is um known, is also naturalized widely in the warmer states and received its earliest name (r. Iaevigata) in 1803, from Michaux who firmly believed it to be native of this country.

In 1796, Rosa rugosa, native of Japan, Korea, and extreme northeastern Asia, was introduced into Eng land by Messrs. Lee and Kennedy.
