The Rugosa roses looked like hybrids and they are very fragrant. The place smelled heavenly. I am not sure why someone would farm these. Pictures taken along a high-way in Western China - as a proof, see the telephone poles are solid concrete. In the US, they are light wood poles.

If you click and view the large pictures, you can see the bees in the first picture. It is interesting to see bees are out in spring.

Pretty sure that's an ancient damask variety used to make rose oil. Something along the lines of Kazanlik (or older),
