The National Rose Society of Victoria has been presented by Mr. Alister Clark, the well-known grower and hybridizer, with two new roses of his own raising…….’Borderer’ is said to be a charming rose, the introduction of which makes an advance in the perpetual flowering polyantha roses, as it blooms right through the season, and carries the perfume of the Wichuriana roses, which usually only flower in the spring. Wonderfully free flowering, of good foliage, and dwarf habit of growth, it makes an excellent bedder and is very effective in bold masses or as a border rose. The flowers are double, and difficult to describe, but shades of pink, copper and amber, go together to make a very charming and distinct rose. This rose also has been well tried at ‘Glenara’ and proved most reliable and suitable to our Australian climate.

The National Rose Society of Victoria has been presented by Mr. Alister Clark, the well-known grower and hybridizer, with two new roses of his own raising. The first of these, ‘Sunny South’, is described as “a decorative hybrid tea rose of vigorous growth, handsome foliage, strong constitution and good habit. The flowers are of beautiful coloring and form, being a lovely pink flushed with carmine on a yellow base, altogether a most distinct and charming combination, hitherto unknown in any rose. It has been well tried at ‘Glenara’ and has proved most suitable to the Australian climate, flowering continuously throughout the season, and in mid-summer sending up strong shoots crowned with flowers that last a long time when cut, and which require no artificial support to enhance their decorative value in the house where the delicate coloring of the well-shaped flowers is best seen."
