Hybrid Perpetuals...How came we in possession of these lovely Roses which have so suddenly delighted us with their presence, forming, as they do, the most valuable Group among Autumnals! Their origin is various ; doubtless, in many instances unknown. The first varieties were raised by M. Laffay from between the Hybrid Bourbon or Hybrid Chinese and Damask Perpetual. Princesse Hélene, which was introduced in 1837, was the first striking variety that was obtained ,Queen Victoria followed next; and in 1840 there were above twenty varieties enumerated in the Rose Catalogues. Several of these, however, were drawn from other Groups: one-fourth were Bourbon Perpetuals.
