Twelve Good Yellow Tea Roses.
Yellow in Tea Roses seems to be the popular colour, in addition to which the plants are, as a rule, of stronger constitution than those bearing mixed coloured flowers. More yellow than mixed coloured Teas by far appear in florists' windows, and in going through any large market grower's establishment one cannot but be struck with the predominance of yellow varieties. I am not depreciating the many beautiful forms other than yellow; I admire them as much as anyone; but for the guidance of those who, as producers, are obliged to study fashion in flowers, I give a list of varieties which will be found to give satisfaction either for growing in pots or for planting out in borders in ordinary Rose houses.
Amazone is a capital Rose, and having rather elongated buds, will be found most useful for bouquet work when half expanded.
