A Description of Roses. By Mr. T. Rivers, jun., Nurseryman, Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire.
In many old Gardens in England may be found a semi-double white Rose, a very robust grower, and half wild in its appearance. It seems to flourish most in those Farmers' Gardens that have a portion of wilderness attached to them. This is the "rosa alba", a native of the Continent, but introduced into this country many years since. From it the annexed varieties have proceeded; they are very distinct; branches green and thinly set with thorns, leaves of a glaucous green; flowers of the most delicate hues imaginable, from the purest white to a peculiar vivid rose colour, but so delicate in their gradations that our terms cannot describe them accurately.

C'est la ancienne rose royale dont il s'agit, c'est le rosa sativa de Dodoneus. Ce rosier, très-commun dans nos jardins, pousse vigoureusement, et tous les terrains lui conviennent. M.Dumont de Courset remarque cependant que ses fleurs reviennnet simples dans un sol trop aride. Elle sont nombreuses, s'épanoiussent de bonne heure, mais ne durent pas longtemps.
