Bardou Job (Nabonnand). — This rose, sent out as a tea, although a seedling from 'Gloire des Rosomanes', follows its parent in being a rampant grower, a thorough autumnal, and producing rich, crimson semi-double flowers of delicious fragrance. A useful crimson climber if it prove distinct enough from the older variety.

Judging from the number of plants of the new rose ‘Black Boy’ that have been put out, every one planting roses this season must have secured one. This rose, raised by Mr. Alister Clark, of Victoria, and presented to the South Australian Horticultural Society, and National Rose Society of South Australia, these societies benefiting solely from the sales of the plants, is described as the darkest climbing variety yet offered. It is said to be a magnificent grower, mildew proof, and sweetly scented, and the color is a deep crimson, shaded blackish maroon, overlaying fiery scarlet, giving a rich luminous effect. The stock raised this season has been practically exhausted, and it is doubtful if a plant could now be obtained, but if you have not secured one already, it is worth trying to get one. The plants seen by “Genista” have all been well grown, while their excellent condition should result in good growth during the next few months, and growers will await with interest the opening of their first blooms.

A thousand plants of ‘Black Boy’, the darkest crimson climber ever sent out, show the remarkably strong growth of the rose. Every plant has been budded from buds sent to the firm by Mr. Alister Clark from his magnificent plants at Glenara, and every plant will be absolutely true. The firm are this year enabled to offer ‘Black Boy’ at 2/-, a reduction of 1/6 on last year’s price, and if ‘Black Boy’ is required it will be advisable to purchase from this source.

Caroline d'Arden (Dickson). — This rose, raised from a cross between the two best red Hybrid Perpetuals in cultivation, 'A. K. Williams' and 'Marie Baumann', proves worthy of its parentage, and has already taken a high place in the estimation of rosarians. The blooms of it exhibited at Manchester last July elicited the greatest admiration; but it is not a rose to be appreciated only by exhibitors, although they cannot fail to find it invaluable, for in addition to the important qualities of size and fine form the flowers are deliciously fragrant, with large, very smooth petals of great substance and of a most attractive shade of pure soft rose color. The plant grows vigorously and flowers well in autumn.

Duchess of Albany (Wm. Paul). - A sport from 'La France', of which it has all the good qualities, with flowers of a deeper shade of color. First class certificate R H.S.

Duchess of Leeds (Mack). - A seedling from 'La France', possessing its parent's characteristic habit of growth and type of flower, less in size and substance, but considerably deeper in color, and likely to make a very pretty garden rose.

Duchesse d'Auerstradt (Barnaix). - A seedling from Reve d'Or. It seems likely to prove a distinct addition to the climbing teas of the 'Gloire de Dijon' race, having deep yellow flowers with a slightly orange shade.

Georges Pernet (Pernet fils). - A very pretty addition to the dwarf ever blooming Polyantha roses, producing trusses of bright rosy flowers with a yellow base, rather large for the type, and well worth growing.

Gloire de Margottin (Margottin pere) is expected to prove the best of all crimsons for forcing for the cut flower market, but at the same time the maiden blooms, especially in a cool season, will be likely to be available for exhibition, and it is worthy of note that Mr. Benjamin Cant, of Colchester, who rarely misjudges the value of a rose for the purpose, has recently expressed his opinion to that effect. The plant is very vigorous, free, and perpetual, the fragrant flowers being of good size and fairly full, and of the most brilliant crimson color.

Gloire des Polyantha (Guillot). - A seedling from 'Mignonette', and so far the best of its miniature class. In all its main characteristics the plant follows its parent, forcing well and being an invaluable autumnal, but the flowers are larger and more perfect, and of a considerably deeper shade of rosy pink. First class certificate Royal Horticultural Society.
