The last variety in this section was really one of last year's imported late. It is a sport of 'Lady Inchiquin' and is known as Westfield Scarlet. In a suitable climate it is no doubt a very fine variety, but it is absolutely hopeless in most parts of Australia, owing to its very pronounced habit of dying back. In New Zealand it will no doubt be appreciated but in Sydney it is difficult to keep the plants alive even under the most favourable conditions for other varieties.

New Roses 1933. Westfield Scarlet Pernt. (H. Morse & Son 1931) A sport of 'Lady Inchiquin' and perfectly hopeless in this climate. Plants die back to buds as soon as the flowers drop. It will probably be a good rose in Tasmania or New Zealand, but is useless here.
