PINK ROAMER. (Manda.) This is without question a hybrid between the Sweetbriar, and carries these characteristics in bloom, while the growth, which is very rampant, and the luxurious foliage, partake more of the Wichuraina. The single flowers, which are produced in close heads, are nearly two inches in diameter, bright rich pink, with almost a white center, which lightens up the orange-red stamens, producing an effect which, combined with fragrance, makes it one of the most valuable roses in cultivation.
Novelty for 1897.
