New American Pedigree Roses.
Five Remarkable Novelties, named in honor of the Great African Explorer- Henry M. Stanley, Mrs. Jessie Fremont, Pearl Rivers, Maud Little, Golden Gate- The Henry M. Stanley Set.
See illustration, page 6*. — We are sure our friends will welcome these Splendid New American Pedigree Roses, which we have the pleasure of offering for the first time this year. They are the rarest novelties of the season, and the mere announcement of their coming has aroused a wide-spread interest that will doubtless absorb the whole stock we have to offer. Each one of these charming novelties is the product of a special union of two of the choicest old sorts, whose good qualities have in this way been combined and improved in the most interesting manner. And when it is considered that these remarkable combinations were made under the most favorable conditions, and in a Southern climate and locality, where Roses reach their fullest perfection, it is natural that they should prove of unusual beauty and value. The work of obtaining these beautiful novelties by artificial hybridization has required years of careful study and patient skill, and it is confidently believed that they will prove highly interesting and reliable additions to our Lists of Beautiful Roses, but few of which have been originated in this country.
