Yellow roses rose in the East

A little known fact to me until now – back in the 18th Century, only pink and white roses were available in Europe. Then yellow wild roses were discovered growing in the Middle East…brought from Afghanistan and Southwest Asia and hybridised though a long process to turn their acrid aromas into the scents we have today.
