It is always an extra bonus to find fragrance in a rose, and we recall the wonderful fragrance of 'Friesia, that exceptionally good yellow floribunda which appeared on the market last year in limited numbers.

Friesia (Kordes). Perhaps because it is a really deep yellow which does not fade we consider this also to be an outstanding new release in this type. The florets run to about twenty-two petals and about three inches across, and the plant is well covered with the blooms. The fragrance in this variety is nothing short of fantastic. Growth is good, and foliage light green. For the second year running we now have something really splendid in a yellow floribunda.
