Lord Penzance's Sweet Briars.
These lovely hybrid Sweet Briars, apart from their extreme beauty, are intensely interesting, being crosses between the well-known Sweet Briar and various other roses, such as Austrian Briar, varieties of Galllca, etc. All of them possess the deliciously-scented foliage and strong, vigorous growth of the Sweet Briar, and are as hardy as Oak trees: the flowers are of the most beautiful tints, and are produced in great profusion, presenting the delightful odor and the numerous golden stamens of the Sweet Briar flower, and much larger. A unique race of Roses of great beauty.
Jeannie Deans. Semi-double, scarlet-crimson; very strong.

Lord Penzance again showed his hybrid Sweet Briers, in which class of Roses his lordship has raised so many beautiful hybrids. On this occasion, the exhibit consisted of [illegible but possible "many bunches"] of several trusses in each and as many varieties, the parentage of each being given, although all had not received names. Two of these will be found among the list of certified plants. Others which were the most striking were Jeannie Deans, with small incurved flowers of a bright crimson, very pretty in the bud and Meg Mewrrilies, another crimson with larger flowers.
