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.
Green Mantle. Bright rich pink, with a band of white.
