The Sydney Mail (12 Nov 1919)  Page(s) 25.  
 
 Australia Felix is one of our Australian-raised roses, and one that I recommend for every garden, if only for its strong La France scent, a combination of the damask and musk-rose perfume; it is well worth a place. It makes a nicely shaped bush,and flowers in masses, when, after slightly cutting back it promptly flowers again. Like the Queen Alexandra rose [the rose previously described in this article], its colour is hard to describe, but I know it to be quite distinct from anything else raised, for, when visiting the raiser's garden a few years ago, the plants — and there must have been dozens — stood out from anything else in the garden. The parentage is not known, but it would be easy to imagine the parents to be La France and Madame Antoine Mari; the colour is a mixture of the two, the reverse of the petals being deeper, in places stained as with claret with a gloss. Beware of the crank who only sees beauty in an exhibition rose — he may condemn it. Give it a trial; I am sure it will please you, and you will want more of it.
