From Wills cigarette cards, Roses – a series of 40 cards. Issued in 1936.No 9. DUCHESS OF ATHOLL (Hybrid Tea) Introduced 1927 Deep coppery orange, flushed with old gold A very striking and distinctive variety. The habit of growth is free and branching, and the blooms are produced in abundance. It is a good garden and bedding variety. The colour of the blooms and its strong red foliage make a fine combination. It has a fruity perfume. It requires moderate pruning the third week in March, leaving two to three eyes on each shoot. Its faults are liability to Black Spot and mildew. These may be kept in check by spraying.
