Paul B. Sanders: Rose Varieties in Ontario. No discussion of roses grown in Canada would be complete without definite reference to the new Hybrid Rugosa ‘Agnes’ which was awarded the Walter Van Fleet Gold Medal in July, 1926. this rose, a cross between Rosa rugosa and Persian Yellow, was originated by the late Dr. William Saunders about 1900, at the Central Experimental Farm at Ottawa, Canada, where it has, since that date, been under test with highly gratifying results. It is a strong grower, produces an abundance of fragrant, pale amber, double flowers early in the season, and is definitely hardy, needing absolutely no winter protection in this climate. In habit and foliage the bush resembles its Rugosa parent, and so is not particularly adapted to bedding, but as a specimen bush or in groups on lawns, it is fine. The blooming period is short – about three weeks – but the variety is invaluable because of its hardiness, earliness of bloom, and the unique color of the flowers.

Mrs. Frederick L. Keays. Noisette Roses.
The clusters of 'Aimee Vibert' are quite heavy, on long strong stalks; blooms are two to two and a half inches in diameter; fragrance is of musk. Foliage is darker and more shining than usual in Noisettes. Being a continuous bloomer, 'Aimee Vibert' is delightful any month of the rose season and excellent both in spring and autumn. Being a true Noisette, with no Tea strain, it is hardy.
