The Gardener’s Monthly 17: 69 (March 1875)

New Rose—Duchess Of Edinburgh, Crimson Tea.— Most Tea Roses are light—a dark one will be welcome. Messrs. Veitch & Sons say: "the color is a deep glowing crimson, very free flowering, and from its present appearance we have every reason to believe it will make as good a bedding variety as the Crimson China."

The Flowers are large and full, fine form and substance.

It was exhibited at the Royal Horticultural Society's Show on May 13th, when it received a first-class Certificate from the Floral Committee, and was greatly admired.
