We can also supply the undernoted, but in our opinion much better varieties are to be found described in the preceding pages, and we think these can very well be done without.

Hybrid Tea Roses.
Duchess of Albany
Duchess of Albany Rose is what is known among florists as a "sport" from La France. In color it is a deep, even, firmly fixed pink of marvelous beauty and regularity. It possesses a fragrance that is decidedly pleasing. The blossoms are numerous and are symmetrical in their proportions, being large and full. The surface of the petals is of splendid finish and they attract everyone by their luster. The growth of the plant is vigorous, with long canes that lean far out, as if to present their blossoms to those who would approach the bush.
