ROSA Lawranceana..R. semperflorens minima Sims. bot. mag. n. 1762. R. pusilla Mauritius cat. p. 15?. R. Lawranceana sweet! hort. sub. lond.....A very low, compact, little shrub, rarely exceeding a foot in height. the prickles are large, stout, and nearly straight. Leaflets ovate, acute, flat, very finely toothed. Petals small, pale-blush, pointed: germens 7-8. Otherwise with the characteristics of ROSA semperflorens, from which I nevertheless have no hesitation in separating it. The difference in mumber of germens in this division appears constant, and therefore important. Mr. Sweet introduced it from the Mauritius (Isle of France), some years ago, and it may be ROSA pusilla of the Catalogue of Botanic Garden there. China is probably its native country, as it approaches so very nearly to ROSA semperflorens.

Rosa abyssinica Brown
This is one of the very few Roses indigenous to Africa. It was first noticed as a distinct species by Mr. Brown, in his appendix to the travels in Abbyssinia of Mr. Salt, who discovered it. It can be confounded with nothing except R. sempervirens, from which is differs in the following particulars: its leaflets are shorter with a little stalk, broader toward the point than at the base; the petioles are exceedingly rough with unequal glands and setae; and the peduncles and calyx are covered over with a thick down; and the prickles are exceedingly numerous and strong.
