China. Sanguinea, this is not identical with the Semperflorens, as has been erroneously stated vy a recent writer, but is amuch improved variety of the latter, with flowers of larger size and more double; the habit of the plant more vigorous and hardy, although not capable of sustaining as severe cold as most other varieties. The remarkably brilliant flowers are produced in such profuse clusters and with such constancy, that this old variety still finds a place in every garden.

Rosa semperflorens pleno, or sanguinea is a celebrated rose, the foliage small, and of a reddish appearance. The flower is well shaped, and of a blood colour; wood of a slender growth, requires some protection in winter, or it will die to the surface of the ground; delights in sandy soil. This rose is frequently called anemone-flowered, although in no respects similar to the character of an anemone-flower. The Otaheite rose is of the same colour, but very inferior.
