ROSE ALLIANCE FRANCO RUSSE
I HAVE been much surprised that exhibitors who make Tea Roses their special study have not brought this variety into greater prominence. As far as I know it has never been exhibited in a competitive stand, and yet its merits are of no mean order. These are in form, substance, and colour almost perfect. At times the flowers resemble a pale Perle des Jardins, but there is a salmon shade pervading most of them. A deep petal, coming up to a point, is one of its characteristics, and I feel sure it would be a valuable kind for the exhibitor. It would be a splendid idea if the Royal Horticultural Society could see their way to plant such sorts as this at Wisley in order to bring them more under the notice of growers. P. April 1 1905.
