[In Diseases of Rose Seeds and Seedlings, describing Drögmuller's contribution to rose breeding by the discovery of Phragmidium subcorticum which attacks rose seedlings]:
In the last few years, after this evil had been discovered and remedied (by what means is not stated), a number of fine new German roses have appears. Among them are...Kaiserin Friedrich. The last two are seedlings of Gloire de Dijon, crossed with [in the case of Kaiserin Friedrich] Perle des Jardins. Kaiserin Friedrich is of a brilliant golden yellow, beautifully shaded with carmine. Perhaps it may be compared to Gloire de Dijon with the colours of Marie van Houtte. It has been pronounced by connoisseurs the finest of the Tea class.
