"Some Early-Flowering Ramblers."
Climbing Roses seem to be extra vigorous this season, in contrast to the dwarf kinds, which, apparently, found the hot, dry summer of last year too exhaustive of their energies, and old plants especially seem much weakened in consequence. The foliage and growth of climbers are strong and healthy, whilst the flower trusses also are extra vigorous. [...]
Tausendschön is one of my favourite Roses, and I consider it second to American Pillar, although it would be difficult to name the third, but perhaps Mrs. F. W. Flight is worthy of this honour, with Blush Rambler [see Fig. 179] running it closely. [...] Blush Rambler has all the attributes of a good climbing Rose, and the large clusters of soft pink flowers are produced in profusion, but their season is not so early as some.

[From the article "Multiflora Ramblers" by Edward K. Butler, Jamaica Plain, Mass.]
Blush Rambler. (B. R. Cant & Sons, 1903.) A semi-double rose of pale pink Color, with lighter Center, flowering in heavy Clusters. It has a great Reputation in England, was awarded the Gold Medal of the National Rose Society, and for the past four years has stood at the head of the "Table of Decorative Roses" given in the Annual of that Society. Strangely enough, it seems to be but little known in this Country. Ellwanger & Barry list it in their catalogue, but write me they are unable to supply it this fall (1917). From ist color, its vigorous growth, and its time of blooming it is a good companion rose to American Pillar and should be grown with it whenever possible.
