J. Coutts, Kew. Pegging Down Roses. ….Practically any variety that makes growths of sufficient length is suitable for this style of pruning and training. The following varieties are al suitable for this purpose. ‘Hugh Dickson’, ‘Frau Karl Druschki’, ‘Gustave Regis’, ‘Vanity’ and….

‘Gustave Regis’ is a strong growing variety, with single pale yellow flowers carried in clusters, having beautiful pointed buds.

p87. Photo ‘Gustave Regis’.
[Note this photo appears to be that of a five-petalled rose.]
Book  (1924)  Page(s) 33.  
Mrs. H. R. Darlington. Roses for Hedges. In spite of the number and diversity of our Hybrid teas, there are none which are quite first class for this particular purposes. Two of the best are the crimson ‘Gruss an Teplitz’ and the yellow ‘Gustave Regis’; both, however, need skilful cultivation and training to prevent their becoming leggy at the base, a fatal defect in a hedge of any sort.
Book  (1923)  
p80. E. J. Holland. Scented Roses. Should we do without ‘Caroline Testout’, ‘Frau Karl Druschki’…. and ‘Gustave Regis’ because scent is deficient or absent?

p102-1 Mrs. F. A. Simonds. The Indoor Arrangement of Roses. ….Some too, it is better to gather when they are sufficiently small not to mature in water, and as an example of this I will only mention ‘Gustave Regis’, whose buds are so perfect that one can never really want them to open further.
Book  (1922)  Page(s) 112.  
Mrs. H. R. Darlington. ….We want, where we have room for them, all sorts of roses….Delicate pointed yet somewhat thin forms, like those given us by ‘Gustave Regis’ or ‘Mrs. Herbert Stevens’.

Roses at Kew Gardens, England. ....latter are mostly devoted to strong-growing varieties, such as ‘Hugh Dickson’, ‘Frau Karl Druschki’, ‘Gustave Regis’, ‘Lady Waterlow’, and the like. They are planted wider apart than the less vigorous-growing sorts, and the strong shoots pegged down, results proving that this is the best way to grow these varieties.
Book  (1920)  
p58-1 Harry Y. Bussey, London. ‘Irish Elegance’ flowers somewhat sparingly, but ‘Gustave Regis’ makes up for the timidity of his Hibernian neighbour by producing his lovely buds with the greatest prodigality.

p70-2 Walter Easlea. Autumn Flowering Climbing Roses. ‘Gustave Regis’ (HT) with its charming long buds.

p86-2 Perpetual flowering section: ‘Gustave Regis’.

p87-5 H. R. Darlington. Decorative Roses. ‘Gustave Regis’ resembles these two Roses in being little more than semi-double, and again the most beautiful stage is that of the bud, which, however, persists rather longer than with ‘Old Gold’, and is retained in the half open flowers. The plant is a fine strong grower and I have even had it as a pillar Rose, but it is a little too liable to suffer from frost to be satisfactory when so grown. A hedge of this Rose and ‘Gruss an Teplitz’ look well together, the nankeen yellow colouring contrasting well with the crimson fo the latter rose.

p117-4 ‘Gustave Regis’ a splendid button-hole rose.

p159-1 Alexander Dickson. The Development of the Hybrid tea. ….The Rosarian who preferred the free-flowering button-hole Rose had also a strong interest in the development then proceeding, and his garden was enriched with such gems as ‘Gustave Regis’, ‘Camoens’ and ‘Marquis de Salisbury’.

p160-4 ibid. We have in addition the Hybrid teas of such extreme vigour that they are out of place as bedding Roses, but are of great value if grown as bushes or dwarf pillars. Such varieties as ‘J. B. Clark’, ‘Gruss an Teplitz’, ‘Mrs. Stewart Clark’, ‘Colcestria’ and ‘Gustave Regis’….
