Tea Roses in New South Wales
(1931)  Page(s) 105.  
 
Alliance Franco Russe:- One of the clearest yellow Roses I know, a good grower, the flower balls in wet weather; purely exhibition.
(1931)  Page(s) 105.  
 
Beaute Inconstante:- The colour varies, but at times is a rich, coppery red, equal to the best Pernetianas, with the added advantage that it grows well; its one fault is that it mildews badly.
(1931)  Page(s) 106.  
 
Catherine Mermet:- Flesh pink, of nice habit, producing nice formed roses that last well.
(1931)  Page(s) 106.  
 
Climbing Devoniensis:- one of the most vigorous in existence, with its creamy white blooms, which hold their shape so well. Still unsurpassed in this colour.
(1931)  Page(s) 106.  
 
In climbers, when it comes to vigour, freedom of bloom and good foliage, the teas stand alone.

Both the Cochets are excellent.

Corallina:- Colour coral red, can be grown into a very fine bush, eight to nine feet high, and build into proportion; the blooms are carried on long, erect stems. It is a very useful rose, both as a specimen plant and for cut flowers in the colder months.
 
(1931)  Page(s) 104 - 105.  
 
Dr Grill:- Yellow, shaded copper, a quick grower, very vigorous, makes a splendid specimen plant; can be strongly recommended, as it is free from most diseases; should be grown more.
(1931)  Page(s) 102, 104, 105.  
 
When I was a boy, I planted here at Homebush a few roses, amongst which were Perle des Jardins, Souv. de Therese Levet and Francois Dubreuil. These are still growing well and are good specimen trees and produce large quantities of nice flowers. p102

What an opportunity is offered to some of the authorities in connection with the public gardens of the State to plant out some of the most vigorous of these old tea Roses and grow them into large shrubs. There is no more striking feature than to see a Rose bush eight or nine feet high, built in proportion and covered in bloom. I would suggest as some of the most suitable for this purpose : Corallina, Mme Charles, Dr. Grill, Francois Dubreuil, Mdlle. Christine de Noue and Mrs Dunlop Best. The latter makes a nice bush up to six feet. p104

Francois Dubreuil:- Beautiful, long dark red buds which last a long time, of good form. I have seen it well shown here in the early spring. p105

Georges Schwartz:- Is still about the best buttercup yellow, but the dwarf is not strong enough; the climber should be planted and treated as a bush, and is really worth while.
