'Common Provence' and 'Cabbage Provence' seem to have been distinct varieties.
Rosa centifolia seems to bloom in flushes throughout the year in temperate climates - see References.
The thirteenth-century agricultural and horticultural manual, Āsār va aḥyā' by Rashid al-din Fadl-allāh Hamadānī (1247?-1318), mentions varieties with one hundred and even two hundred petals. The earliest mention of R. centifolia seems to be in Zoroastrian religious writings of the VIIIth century or earlier.
