Page 58: [Photo of hips] [One of the author's fifty favorite roses.] Description... Raised in the Hastrup Nurseries in Denmark (in 1914). It makes a good, low hedge and is a great favorite with local authorities for mass planting in parks and by roadsides, being practivally troublefree...

Korresia ... one could say that 'Korresia' is the culmination of some eighty or so years' work by hybridists world-wide, attempting to produce a bright yellow, healthy, scented, unfading floribunda with a good constitution...

Not a typical Alba, being of more slender, branching growth with leaves of a much darker green than one would expect. Flowers are a deper pink than the other albas.

One of the author's fifty favorite roses. Some doubt that it is of pure damask lineage. Almost certainly a centifolia is in there somewhere. The blooms are more gallica in their formation than damask. The buds have long feathery calyces.

Margaret Merril One of Michael Gibson's fifty favorite roses... That 'Margaret Merril' has made considerable headway in competition with the long-established 'Iceberg' says something for its qualities... Superficially white, a closer look will detect a blush-pink suffusion and, when the blooms first open, the stamens are pink too. But above all, what has made this rose such a winner is its rich, sweet fragrance... fine, glossy, dark green and rather holly-like foliage...

Page 99: One of the author's fifty favorite roses. One of the best all-purpose climbers. In 1930, this repeat-flowering sport of 'Dr. W. Van Fleet' was launched on to the market by Henry A. Dreer of Philadelphia and given the name 'Everblooming Dr. W. Van Fleet'. Later this was changed to 'The New Dawn' and it became the first holder of a plant patent. Harry Wheatcroft seems to have been alone in maintaining that it flowered best on the old wood so that pruning should be sparing. 'New Dawn' figured in the parentage of 'Aloha', 'Bantry Bay', 'Compassion', 'City Girl', 'Dublin Bay', 'Étude', 'Highfield', 'High Hopes', 'Mornign Jewel', 'Parade', 'Pink Perpetue', Rosy Mantle', and 'White Cockade'.
