Pages 87-88: Albéric Barbier Barbier, 1900. R. wichuraiana x 'Shirley Hibberd'... [Barbier] fertilized the flowers [of R. wichuraiana] with the pollen of roses of several classes... Barbier used [less hardy roses than his American counterparts] many tea roses, which were common in French gardens... extremely disease resistant... buds are yellow, the flowers are creamy white... borne in clusters on short laterals... they look and smell very much like tea roses... [it blooms] at the peak of the hybrid tea season... many canes that grow straight out from the base... the leaves are extremely glossy, disease resistant, and long lasting, sometimes remaining on the bush even after frost... thrives in partial shade... it survives long periods of drought much more successfully than many other modern climbing roses... [because of its Tea background, it is not] as cold hardy as the American wichuraiana hybrids... [one of Barbier's best]

[Wilhelm] Kordes was especially impressed with 'Golden Glow', a yellow climber the Brownells introduced in 1937... Kordes praised its abundant golden flowers and its hardiness, even going so far as to say, "I think 'Golden Glow" is the Climber we have been expecting for long, long years." Like the Brownells, Kordes strove for cold-hardy roses. To create 'Goldbusch' he crossed 'Golden Glow' with a hybrid of the hardy species rose, R. eglanteria... Later, another cross between 'Golden Glow' and an R. eglanteria hybrid produced for Kordes a shrub rose that can easily be used as a climber, 'Alchymist', which is similar to 'Goldbusch' but has double flowers in shades of yellow and orange. 'Alchymist' was introduced in 1956...

Boerner, introduced by Jackson and Perkins, 1949. Several pages of information about this rose ... In his application for a patent for this rose, Boerner stated specifically that it was a pillar plant ... David Austin has used it in his breeding program .. very large (four- to five-inch) flowers composed of nearly sixty petals in various shades of pink, sometimes with a hint of orange ... [they] have a strong tea fragrance ... [dead-heading]: snip off the spent flowers at the first node; they will bloom again from this point on the lateral.

Page 51: Splendens Known before 1841, 'Splendens' is a descendant of the Ayrshire roses. It is historically interesting as one of the first climbing roses used on pillars and walls and as a weeping standard. It is vigorous...
