The Sweet Briar is a native species well-known to all lovers of plants from the delicious fragrance of its leaves and the beauty of its bright scarlet fruit. It is also one of our best hedge plants.

"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.
Anne of Geierstein. Dark crimson, followed by an abundance of prettily clustered bunches of fruits.
For a selection of three we would choose Anne of Geierstein, Brenda and Rose Bradwardine as the most beautiful and widely dilferent. I will supplv one of each of these three grand varieties from 2½ in. pots for 25¢.
