Cheshunt Hybrid (Paul and Son, 1873). — This was the earliest Rose to be recognised as a Hybrid Tea. It is of very vigorous growth, sufficient for a pillar or a paling, hardy and strong with fine foliage, decidedly liable to mildew. A free and early bloomer, but the shape is open and the colour is wanting in brightness, and a dull Rose is surely a poor thing however many good qualities it may have.

Notes on New Roses.
Cheshunt Hybrid (Tea). — A very distinct and beautiful English raised rose. It is a seedling from Madame de Tartas, a little known tea-scented variety, crossed with a hybrid perpetual. It is assuredly a grand rose, for the flowers, whilst of the rich dark colour and fine form of the hybrid perpetual, possess the delicate perfume of the tea rose. In vigour of growth it is equal to Blairi No. 2, so that it will be a most valuable climbing rose.
