From Wills cigarette cards, Roses – a series of 40 cards. Issued in 1936. No 10. EDITH NELLIE PERKINS (Hybrid Tea) Introduced 1928 Light cream, shaded orient-red and cerise. A pretty Rose for garden or bedding purposes. The blooms have rather peculiarly arranged petals, but they come on long stems, making them ideal for cutting. The habit of growth is vigorous, making plants three to four feet high. The foliage is reddish-green. A Rose of good constitution and lasting qualities. It requires moderate pruning to four eyes in late March.
