New Roses 1925. Sensation (HT) (Jos. Hill Co.) Flower scarlet crimson, with maroon markings, very large, double, Iasting; moderate fragrance; bud very large, long pointed, borne singly on long strong stems. Growth very vigorous, free branching with heavy luxuriant foliage, profuse bloomer. Awarded Gold Medal of the American Rose Society at the important National
Flower Show, held at Cleveland, U.S.A. 4/- each.
A variety with superb qualities and serious faults. There is a rich orange flush through the crimson at the base while at times the blooms show a very rich sheen. Sometimes the colour is rich as ‘Chateau de Clos Vougeot’, at others a hideous purple shade. Recommended for trial.
