Page 99: One of the author's fifty favorite roses. One of the best all-purpose climbers. In 1930, this repeat-flowering sport of 'Dr. W. Van Fleet' was launched on to the market by Henry A. Dreer of Philadelphia and given the name 'Everblooming Dr. W. Van Fleet'. Later this was changed to 'The New Dawn' and it became the first holder of a plant patent. Harry Wheatcroft seems to have been alone in maintaining that it flowered best on the old wood so that pruning should be sparing. 'New Dawn' figured in the parentage of 'Aloha', 'Bantry Bay', 'Compassion', 'City Girl', 'Dublin Bay', '√Čtude', 'Highfield', 'High Hopes', 'Mornign Jewel', 'Parade', 'Pink Perpetue', Rosy Mantle', and 'White Cockade'.
