The article offers information about striped roses. It explains that the naturally-occurring striped roses have the genes for variegation and spontaneous or induced mutations may have contributed to the stripes. Some examples of striped roses that naturally occur in old garden roses are bourbon rose "Honorine de Brabant," "Variegata di Bologna" and "Ferdinand Pichard" hybrid. A short list of European and Americamn striped roses is provided.
