Chris Blackstone, Secretary of Jersey Rosarians.
The varieties of roses grown in Jersey are much the same as those in the British mainland. Although there is a rose named 'Jersey Beauty', it was bred in New Jersey, U.S.A. by Manda in 1899 and is a cross between R. wichuraiana and 'Perle des Jardins'. In 1970 Vi Lort-Philips, a Jersey resident and formerly president of the World Camellia Society, wrote to the RHS in the hope of obtaining cuttings. She received replies from East Germany, from New Zealand and eventually obtained a plant from a Dr. Brierly in London. Since then, she has propagated it frequently for friends in Jersey and also introduced it to Peter Beales, who now lists it in his catalogue.

"Some Early-Flowering Ramblers."
Climbing Roses seem to be extra vigorous this season, in contrast to the dwarf kinds, which, apparently, found the hot, dry summer of last year too exhaustive of their energies, and old plants especially seem much weakened in consequence. The foliage and growth of climbers are strong and healthy, whilst the flower trusses also are extra vigorous. [...]
Jersey Beauty ranks among the strongest growers, and is very fine for training over tall trellises, for the shoots grow to a great length. The flowers are small but of very dainty appearance, like little cups of ivory white.
