....the variety Queen Alexandra - introduced recently by the Rev. J. H. Pemberton - which is excellent for pillars, and is a perpetual flowerer. The blooms are perfectly single, reminding one of a glorified Dog-Rose; the colour is pale citron-yellow flushed with pink when young, and fading with age to white. The same raiser has also given us 'Danae', soft yellow; 'Moonlight', lemon white; 'Callisto' pale yellow; and 'Clytemnestra', salmon yellow; all semi-double flowers borne in large clusters and suitable for small pillars.
