Northern Star (Lismore, New South Wales.)

‘Black Boy’ – Another of Alister Clark’s productions, a rampant grower, and if pruned after each blooming will come again. Without doubt, it is the best red climber in existence. Its only fault is that the flowers are a little thin.

The Penelope Rose
The grower (Mr. John Williams, of Broadwater Nursery, Mount Gravatt, Brisbane) sends us a photograph for inspection of his new rose, Penelope, to which reference was made on Saturday. With its white centre in the setting of red it must be a very beautiful flower. The photo can be seen at our office for a week.

The Penelope Rose
We learn from Mr. John Williams, of the Broadwater Nursery, Mount Gravatt, Brisbane (Q.), that all the stock of the new rose grown by him is sold, and all orders in hand go forward during the coming week. A wealthy American firm, we learn, has bought the exclusive right to dispose of the rose outside of Australasia. There was an immense rush for the rose, and orders accumulated to such an extent that all could not be supplied for some time, but were sent out in rotation. Those who ordered early here can congratulate themselves in securing the Penelope.
