Mercedes Gallart, Cl. in the second year, produced a few flowers of an ugly purplish hue that nobody liked; it did not repeat.

Talisman, Cl. [the first year in Mr. Sissung's garden] attained a height of ten feet but there were no flowers... From the second year on it has been one mass of bloom in the spring, but it does not repeat. It will mildew on the slightest provocation, but it has never had blackspot.
