The Garden - Volume 79 - Page 525 (1915)

Queen Alexandra (Perpetual Climber). — The flowers are something like Una, only a little smaller, with the edges of the petals on the reverse side a blush pink, giving a very beautiful impression in the mass.

two of the photos of Queen Alexandra (Pemberton!) are not right - after its description it should be a single pale yellow hybrid musk and not a near double pink or a single pink multiflora rambler.

Also the Sanders-picture of Queen Alexandra shows the Veitch-Queen Alexandra, not the one that was breed by Pemberton.

Just the photography of the RNRS Yearbook from 1916 shows The Queen Alexandra Rose from Pemberton.

The Pemberton-Queen is probably lost - even at Sangerhausen it seems that only a pink multiflora can be found there.
