New Roses 1932. Eileen Dorothea HT. (A. Dickson & Sons, 1931) F. 3. Rich carmine pink though in cooler climates it would probably show more of the red shades. The buds are long and pointed, opening to full, large blooms carrying 50 petals and either for garden purposes or exhibition it is a very fine variety. The growth is good, while the plants are free blooming with good foliage. The scent appears to be a mixture of sweet, and fruit, while the variety is recommended everywhere
