Los Angeles. Hybrid Tea. Originated in California and named in honor of the southern city by Howard & Smith, Los Angeles. Its flawless form and perfection of color has made it acclaimed throughout the world as the pink-par-excellence. Its lovely buds are long and proudly pointed, gradually changing to blooms of perfect form, and of a color best described as flaming pink, springing from a golden setting. And with it all a valiant bloomer, rose succeeding rose throughout the season, filling the garden with perfume and loveliness.
These three roses, postpaid, for $2.35. Any one of these roses, price 85 cents, postpaid. The four above [including Golden Emblem], postpaid, for $3.25.

[From an advertisement in the American Rose Annual 1926
, p. viii:] The newer shades in roses such as Coral, Old Gold, Saffron Yellow, Terra Cotta and Oriental Red are obtained by planting Pernetiana Roses
, and these roses are only a success
when budded upon Rosomanes Stock. This distinction is quite noticeable in the rose 'Los Angeles' which proves a failure when budded upon any other stock... Our Hybrid Tea and Perpetual Roses are budded upon Multiflora
Stock... [they note that in their catalog they
] do not pass along the description of the Hybridists as the roses grow in Europe but as they grow in our Nursery, always stating defects as well as merits...
