Wichuraiana Hybrid Roses
The blossoms of the Lady Gay Rose are a rich, delicate cherry-pink, shading to soft pink, and delightfully sweet in odor. They come in large, loose clusters and are very showy. The plant grows vigorously and has deep green foliage that endures until late in the fall. An excellent hardy Rose- superb for covering trellises, fences, embankments and dead walls. The Lady Gay Rose is a seedling from the Crimson Rambler Rose, and in habit of growth and general characteristics much resembles that old and popular variety. The texture and color of the flowers are much superior to Crimson Rambler and in many respects it seems to be superior to that variety.
