"New Roses for the Garden" by Charles E. F. Gersdorff
A new line of Roses developed and described by Captain George C. Thomas, Jr. in the "American Rose Annual" for 1920 must be mentioned although I have not had opportunity for any personal observation of these varieties. However, the fact that they have been admired by others and have passed successfully the rigid tests conducted at the Rose Test Garden, Portland, Oregon, and have been produced by an amateur whose standard of excellence is very high and whose ability in judging the merits of Roses is well known, leads me to believe that one would not go far wrong in acquiring these varieties. I have in mind the following: Dr. Huey (Hybrid Wichuraiana) dark crimson-maroon, semi-double, of great brilliancy and distinctiveness. It has one period of bloom. [...] All four were sent out in 1920 by Bobbink & Atkins.
