Lyonrose produced last year [1916] quite pale pink blooms, but this [1917, very sunny] summer the colour of the blooms changed to their advantage and showed the beautiful madder-red colouring depicted in the drawings....Rudolf Schmotz, Aussig a. Elbe.

Hybrid Tea Roses.
Lyon Rose
Another of the blended productions of the hybridizer, that leaves one in amazement as to its shadings. The flowers are described formally as pink-red, with shades of coral, salmon and chrome-yellow- certainly a unique collection of hues and shades to be associated with a single petal. The fragrance is regal, and the blooms are profuse and remarkably constant. They are large and full, and perfectly formed. The petals are heavy and gracefully patterned. The plant is vigorous in growth, and hardy in almost any climate, although, where the winters are extremely cold, some protection is mecessary. In some floral catalogues the Lyon Rose is known under the name of "Pernettiana".

The Lyons Rose (H.T., 1907) This beautiful Rose is a shrimp pink with orange yellow at the base of the petals, but the colour v aries to nearly all pink. It makes a good exhibition Rose, the flower being generally pointed and well-shaped, but at times the centre is weak. It has a curious habit of making horizontally spreading growths, and an objectionable one of losing its leaves early in autumn. It is badly susceptible to black spot; nevertheless it is a lovely Rose which all should grow, and the plant fairly hardy, but autumn growths are often killed by frost. It should be pruned severely.

Hybrid Briar Roses.
M. Pernet Ducher has not been slow to utilise his creation of Soleil d'Or in still further successes by crossing some of his splendid Hybrid Teas with seedlings from Soleil d'Or, for we have announced for this year the Lyon Rose, which should prove quite the novelty of the year if the report of those who have seen it is oorreot.
