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.

Hybrid Tea Roses.
This class is of recent origin. They are produced from crossing Tea with Hybrid Perpetual Roses, and while a few denote well defined traits of both races, others seem to be pure Teas. Many are of very weak growth and bad color, hence we have rejected the greater number as undesirable. The following are valuable:
Cheshunt Hybrid. Cherry carmine, shaded violet, of vigorous growth and free Spring bloomer.

Among Tea Roses there has been a much greater advance even, than among the Perpetuals. The following comprise the finest new sorts:
...Cheshunt Hybrid (1873)...
In Aline Sisley, Cheshunt Hybrid and Duchess of Edinburg [sic], we have three red and crimson Teas darker in color than any of the old varieties, and affording a pleasing contrast to those of delicate light tints. Cheshunt Hybrid has also proved a fine green-house climber, and as it is hardy, would probably do well as a climber out of doors.

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.
