Beauties of Roses - (1850-1853) 1980 facsimile edition, pp. xxi-xxii
Henry Curtis
Devoniensis

The fortunate raiser of this Rose was the late George Foster, Esq., of Oatland, near Devonport, whose brother Edward W. Foster has kindly favored us with .the following informations as to its parentage, &c. “The Devoniensis was raised by my brother, a genuine lover of horticulture and a true florist. His opinion was that it was produced from the Yellow China by an impregnation of the Yellow Noisette Smithii which was growing alongside it, as he was in the constant habit of impregnating his roses. One of some seeds saved at the same time produced a rose much like the Yellow Noisette, but greatly inferior to Devoniensis; it flowered the first year from the seed bed, but was small and weak, and the second year on being budded on a strong stock, it grew to a very fine flower.”

“In the following year Mr. Pince, of the Firm of Lucombe, Pince, & Co., of Exeter,offered my brother twenty guineas for it, and it then passed into their hands; it is perfectly hardy but requires a rich strong soil.”

Those eminent horticulturists (Messrs. Lucombe & Co.,) state that Mr. Foster thought very highly of some other seedlings that were raised with Devoniensis, but after growing them with every care and comparing them with it, they (Messrs. Lucombe & Co.,) found them too inferior to send out, which shows the lottery attendant on raising seedlings. Devoniensis, however, exhibiting the brilliant prize that may sometimes be realized.

I just noticed that some of these photos are of "Jesse Hildreth", taken in a cemetery (San Juan Bautista) that we used to think was Devoniensis until they were grown next to each other. The pictures were taken by Jeri Jennings, and one by Masha, and should be moved to the JH page.

I don't think anyone has yet done this. Are the photos that need moving out of the 'Devoniensis' page and into the "Jesse Hildreth" page those from Jeri (57451 and 57452); and from Masha (170415 and 170416)?
It might also be clearer if Masha and Jeri recaption their photos by going into Edit.

For anyone with plenty of space in a warm climate, Devoniensis x Fortune's Double Yellow would be a very informative cross.
