"Hybrid Stock for Rose Propagation" (Paper read before the American Rose Society by Dr. W. Van Fleet)
For high budding we have found nothing better than the Penzance Hybrid Sweetbriers, Rose Bradwardine, Amy Robsart, and Anne of Gierstein. They grow here more upright and vigorous than the type species, and are not subject to sun-scald like standard Manetti.

Lord Penzance's Sweet Briars.
These lovely hybrid Sweet Briars, apart from their extreme beauty, are intensely interesting, being crosses between the well-known Sweet Briar and various other roses, such as Austrian Briar, varieties of Galllca, etc. All of them possess the deliciously-scented foliage and strong, vigorous growth of the Sweet Briar, and are as hardy as Oak trees: the flowers are of the most beautiful tints, and are produced in great profusion, presenting the delightful odor and the numerous golden stamens of the Sweet Briar flower, and much larger. A unique race of Roses of great beauty.
Amy Robsart. Beautiful deep rose; robust grower and free.
