Hybrid Musk - RoseZu "Rosa moschata" und "Moschata Hybride", "Moschata-Hybride", "Moschatahybride" findet man widersprüchliche Aussagen. Wie es sich genau verhält, sollten die Experten einmal genau darstellen. Aber vielleicht weiss es ja niemand ganz genau.
Die Bezeichnung der Rosensorte "Moschata-Hybride" ist irreführend. Sie hat mit der Wildart "Rosa moschata", der echten "Moschusrose" nichts zu tun. Die "Moschata-Hybriden" gehen auf die 1913 von dem englischen Pfarrer und Rosenzüchter "Joseph Pemberton" eingeführte Rose "Moonlight" zurück. Auf Grund ihres Geruchs nannte man die Pemberton-Sorten "Hybrid Musk", das als "Moschata-Hybride" eingedeutscht wurde.
An der Kreuzung der "Moschata-Hybriden" sind die "Muliflora-Rambler" "Trier" und die Polyantharose "Marie Jeanne" und einige frühe "Teehybriden" beteiligt.

Hybrid Musk Roses
This is a small group, but it includes some of the very best of all garden roses. Hybrid Musks make excellent shrubs with a wonderful show in midsummer, and many of them also flower well a second time. The flowers are produced in large, loose bunches or sprays and are small or medium-sized, usually white, cream, pink, or buff, mostly with excellent scent.
"Hybrid Musks" have always been associated with the Rev. "Joseph Pemberton" of Havering-atte-Bower in Essex. He and his sister Florence were successful exhibitors of the large-flowered roses that were in fashion in the late 19th century, such as "Hybrid Perpetuals", and he was one of the early members of the National Rose Society of Great Britain. Though taught to bud roses by his father at the age of 12, it was only in around 1913, when he was over 60 and had retired, that he began to breed his own roses at their family home. Pemberton aimed to produce tough garden roses such as he remembered as a child, not the large exhibition types then claiming the attention of professional breeders. By crossing "Trier", raised in 1904, with various "Hybrid Teas", Pemberton produced a new race, eventually called the "Hybrid Musks".
"Trier" is a large shrub, very well scented, and repeats through the season, characteristics found in most of Pemberton’s roses. Its uncertain parentage contains elements of "R. multiflora", which has given its extra hardiness to the Hybrid Musks, and of "Noisettes". After Pemberton’s death in 1926, his sister and his gardener J.A. Bentall introduced more of his roses and Bentall later raised and introduced his own Hybrid Musks.

8. Hybrid Musk
Don’t let the simple blooms of hybrid musk blooms like this "Ballerina" variety fool you; as the name implies, they are full of satisfying fragrance.
This useful group of roses evolved early in the 20th century. Their healthy, free-flowering habits make them useful, versatile shrubs. The flowers are borne in large clusters and are usually scented. Good for hedging, specimen and group planting.
- "Aglaia": (Multiflora rambler) 'Yellow Rambler' Clusters of semi-double, medium sized flowers in shades of yellow paling to cream. Slight fragrance. One of the progenitors of the hybrid musks. ...... Read More

Louis Lens is a name that's synonymous with Hybrid Musks. You'll find more information under Breeders: LENS and Suppliers: Louis Lens.
[From Climbing Roses, by Stephen Scanniello, p. 4:] Developed by the Reverend Joseph Pemberton in England during the early part of the 20th Century... small-flowered shrub roses that are everblooming and can be used as climbers... they are only distantly related to R. moschata.
[From Roses, by Eleonore Cruse, p. 9:] a group discovered at the beginning of the twentieth century by a clergyman, Joseph Pemberton, and developed by him and his gardeners... very remontant. These roses are descended from "Rosa multiflora", "Rosa x noisettiana" and "Rosa chinensis". However, "Rosa moschata", from which the group derives the word "musk" in its name, goes very far back in time.
[From Gardening with Old Roses, by Alan Sinclair and Rosemary Thodey, p. 35:] Hybrid Musk blooms tend to become paler as the flowers age... in warmer climates they frequently take on the dimensions of small climbers and are often treated as such...
[From Peter Schneider on Roses, by Peter Schneider, p. 147:] Although a few hybrid musks, including 'Robin Hood', display a compact habit, most are limber growers bearing huge clusters of small blooms... most are content in dappled shade. They are all repeat bloomers, and as a group have an excellent health record... Schneider discusses how they came to be named, refer to source for this information.
[From Fifty Favourite Roses, by Michael Gibson, p. 19:] the hybrid musks were a pretty mixed bag, being sold at first as hybrid teas. When entered as such in a show of the National Rose Society (not yet Royal) the then secretary would have none of this and the story goes that it was he who suggested the name hybrid musk simply because of the new roses' good scent...
[From Fifty Favourite Roses, by Michael Gibson, p. 55:] There is a saying that it does not matter what colour hybrid musks start out; they all end up white...
[From The Old Rose Adventurer, by Brent Dickerson, p. 362:] The Reverend J.H. Pemberton, in England, originated a group of varieties which he called Hybrid Musks. They are large bushes, in bloom more or less continuously, bearing flowers of varying size and doubleness, mostly white, pale pink, and pale yellow, in gigantic clusters.
[Ibid, p. 362:] The Musk strain was perpetuated in the everblooming climbers produced by Captain George C. Thomas, Jr., who used some of Pemberton's roses as parents in his early hybridizing work. His roses, or his earlier varieties at least, are continuous-blooming shrubs which are reasonably hardy. The flowers are mostly single, and although he introduced them as hardy everblooming climbers, they never really climb much or bloom freely after the early summer display.
[From Beautiful American Rose Gardens, by Mary Tonetti Dorra, p. 10:] Hybrid Musks... came on the scene in 1918 and were formerly called Pemberton roses after the English hybridizer Reverend Joseph Pemberton, who produced several of the earliest varieties... hardy to 15F, vigorous, disease-resistant, and profuse-blooming...

"Hybrid Musk Roses" (See Old Roses)
These roses were mostly raised by the Reverend "Joseph Pemberton", at Havering-atte-Bower in Essex, using the rose Trier, a hybrid between a "hybrid tea" and a seedling of Aglaia, which had the "musk rose" in its ancestry. Thus the name "Hybrid musk" is rather far-fetched though generally accepted. Pemberton crossed "Trier" with various "Hybrid Teas", producing several very beautiful, though sterile, seedlings; tall, repeat-flowering, scented shrubs, with large clusters of small flowers. Penelope (1923) and Felicia (1928) are well-known examples.
The hybrid musk roses came to us by way of England in the early 1900s. Hybrid musks are often overlooked as a class of rose for the garden, but they offer much. Hybrid musks are generally large (6+ feet) and have an arching habit. Most all are hardy to USDA zones 5-6. They have attractive leathery foliage and rebloom reliably through the summer in large trusses of small- to medium-sized flowers with a strong fragrance. Hybrid musks have outstanding disease resistance and are exceptionally tolerant of filtered shade, blooming well with as little as 5 hours of direct sunlight. Most can be used as pillar roses or as short climbers for walls and fences
The "Hybrid Musks" are the result of Rev. "Joseph Pemberton"'s ambitious breeding work of the early part of the 20th century. The heritage of this class is a very mixed one, and in many ways it is deceptive to refer to them as "Hybrid Musks", as "R. moschata" didn't play a very big part in the developement of these roses.
The majority of them have the Multiflora Rambler "Trier" as a parent or grandparent. "Trier" is listed as being "Aglaia" ("R. multiflora" X "Rêve d'Or") X "unknown". As is the case with several of the Hybrid Musks, you can see there is a greater affinity to the Noisettes than the name suggests.
One other major contributing parent was "Danaë", a cross of "Trier" and the deep pink Hybrid Perpetual, "Gloire de Chédane-Guinoisseau". There is no "R. moschata" present there.
No matter what their genetic pedigree, ...
- Buff Beauty
- Secret Garden Musk Climber
The seemingly final stage of Noisettes, returning them much to their original concept of multi-flowered shrubs, was coming with the development of the "Hybrid Musks" (comprising crosses between "Noisettes" and "Hybrid Teas", etc.) in the 1910's, 1920's, and beyond."
"Hybrid Musks" are an exceptional group of roses, worthy of a place in any garden. They are all cluster flowered, rapid repeat bloomers and very fragrant. Being fairly modern varieties there is an extensive choice of colours and bloom shape. Some varieties produce large single petal blooms, others fully double blooms, and others trusses of small single petal blooms resembling a hydrangea. The growth habit is usually a mounding bushy form but some are upright and can be used as climbers. They're disease resistant, and will tolerate partial shade.
Hybrid Musk Roses
"Trier" is an almost forgotten climber that is closely related to "multifloras" and somewhat more distantly related to the fragrant "musk rose". Yet it has a capacity to imbue a large enough portion of its offspring with this delicious fragrance that Bishop Pemberton would use it often in the development of his roses and to name them for the more distant fragrant relative. The resulting roses tended to be well branched and foliferous in the multiflora tradition, but fragrant in the musk tradition. It is apparent that Pemberton was interested in plants with rose blossms larger than those of the multiflora rambler, and in most cases he succeded. The resulting group of roses is shrubby, well brancehed, foliferous, remontant, moderately tolerant of shade, and cold hardy. Most members of the class have good fragrance.
There is some variation in the class. "Vanity" tends to build a large, very open plant with dark rose or cerise single roses that dance like butterflies suspended in mid air. "Ballerina", on the other hand produces single roses that are much smaller, closely packed together on a dense plant. "Francesca"'s apricot flowers are almost hybrid tea or hybrid perpetual in size, but the plant is among the least vigorous of the bunch. "Danae" may produce the most hybrid-tea like blossoms of the bunch and might be perfectly suited to a number of very formal uses. "Felicia" may have the best overall balance of habit, good health, and so on; but her strengths are subtle and it can take some years of growing roses to quite appreciate them.

"Hybrid Musk" - Any of a group of highly foliferous and highly remontant roses, most of which were bred by Pemberton and his distributor Bentall, and most of which are decended from "Trier". Many hybrid musks strongly fragrant, but the most popular ones are so on account of their generosity with flowers, their freely branching habit and their extreme vigor. There can be a kind of concinity between the flowers and the foliage that makes these roses almost always seem much more beautiful than could be explained by the beauty of any of the individual parts.

The Hybrid Musk Roses
In 1896 Peter Lambert introduced "Aglaia" bred from "Rosa multiflora" and "Rêve d'Or", a Noisette with Tea and Musk in its ancestry. "Trier" then descended from a seedling of "Aglaia", and was introduced in 1904; which propagated a new class of roses called the "Hybrid Musks". "Hybrid Musks" were largely developed by Reverend Joseph Pemberton of England, and his successors Anne and Jack Bentall, using "Trier" and "Hybrid Teas" in the breeding. Graham Thomas noted that Pemberton had a high regard for scent in roses. This can be displayed in Pemberton's breedings of the Hybrid Musks.

Hybrid Musk Roses
Hybrid Musk Roses
Rev Joseph Pemberton bred one of the R. moschata families with certain Hybrid Teas and Polyanthas to establish this distinctive rose class. In the Rose Annual for 1968, Graham Stuart Thomas summed up the Hybrid Musk class: "Unless some keen spirit is prepared to produce some richly coloured shrub rose along the lines adopted by Pemberton, I think this group should remain as it is: carefree flowering shrubs of the greatest value for our gardens at midsummer or later, delightfully fragrant, in a fair range of colours and of superb value for hedging. Considered as such, Joseph Pemberton served us well." This class includes some of the most useful roses available for landscape purposes.
- Lavender Lassie
- Buff Beauty
OLD FASHIONED CLIMBERS - RAMBLERS
These are roses from pre 1940. The types of roses include climber, ramblers, hybrid tea, centifolias, rugosas, moss, bourbon, hybrid musks which all have their own characteristics of flower sizes, shapes, fragrances and plant growth. Some have beautiful hips and thorns, some are recurrent (repeat flower) and others flower only once over summer, or perpetually.

Although they arose too late to qualify technically as Old Garden Roses, the hybrid musks are often informally classed with them, since their growth habits and care are much more like the "Old Garden Roses" than "Modern Roses". The "hybrid musk" group was mainly developed by Rev. Joseph Pemberton, a British rosarian, in the first decades of the 20th century, based upon "Aglaia", an 1896 cross by Peter Lambert. A seedling of this rose, "Trier", is considered to the foundation of the class. The genetics of the class are somewhat obscure, as some of the parents are unknown. "Rose multiflora", however, is known to be one parent, and "Rosa moschata" (the "musk rose") also figures in its heritage, though it is considered to be less important than the name would suggest. Hybrid musks are disease-resistant, repeat flowering and generally cluster-flowered, with a strong, characteristic "musk" scent. The stems tend to be lax and arching, with limited thorns. Examples include "Buff Beauty" and "Penelope".
