This elegant Rose, which we now introduce for the first time, and which we have named in honor of the Old Dominion, is the result of a cross between Safrano and Marechal Niel. We consider it one of the most promising Tea Roses of modern introduction. It is a vigorous grower of bushy habit; the blooms are large, double, finely formed, lasting and of excellent substance, often remaining on the bush until dried up; color a light yellow with a tinge of saffron at the centre, reverse of petals a pinkish cast; perfume, a delicate and delightful tea scent. It will undoubtedly prove a very desirable and profitable variety for forcing. Price, 50 cents each.

Myriads of seedlings have been raised from Gloire de Dijon, many inclining more to the Tea-scented type, as Belle Lyonnaise, &c, until now comes the white Etendard de Jeanne d'Arc, which at a little distance looks like the ghost of a Souvenir de la Malmaison. This seedling therefore affords an additional indication by reverting to a Bourbon type that the supposition, founded on its external characteristics, of Gloire de Dijon having been a hybrid between a Tea and a Bourbon was well grounded, and this may serve as an argument in favour of reasonable deductions of a similar kind in other cases.

Our best hardy climbing roses are Marechal Niel; Cloth of Gold (the true one, most of them now a-days, are only the Solfaterre, or the still later Augusta). I saw Cloth of Gold and Solfaterre large outdoor plants, in fully bloom side by side here in 1849, they had come from Buist two years previous; there is no comparison in the bloom, though the wood, growth, and habit are the same. I then discarded Solfaterre for good. Reine Marie Henriette; Imperatrice Eugenie; Estelle Pradel; Celine Forestier; Perle de Lyon; Gloire de Dijon; Cherokee; Margueretta, Jeanne d' Arc, Triomphe de la Duchesse; Woodland Marguerite; W. A. Richardson; Madame Deslongchamps.

The Horticulturist and Journal of Rural Art and Rural Taste, 5(3): 149 (Sept 1850)
THE AUGUSTA ROSE A PERPETUAL.—Having received many letters from numerous correspondents, inquiring if the Augusta was a perpetual or not, and having invariably said that I thought not, from all indications heretofore given, I now feel happy to be able to state, that it has this season, (the second year of its blooming.) shown its true Noisette character, having already bloomed twice, and small plants of this spring's growth from the bud, say four feet, were nipped not long since, which caused the eyes on each to break, now having some 15 limbs to each plant, and every shoot at this present time going into flower. I can therefore state to all those to whom I have written to the contrary, all of whom, I think, are readers of the Horticulturist, that it is a true Noisette in all respects, and is a perpetual, and therefore increased much in value, having that quality which adds a worth to every rose. Respectfully, &c., A. Fahnestock. Syracuse, Aug. 13th, 1850.
