p 55. That California growers are very much alive on the stock proposition is evidenced by the subjoined extract from a letter dated March 23, 1920, and written by Mr. George C. Roeding, of the California Nursery Co., Niles, Calif.:
This company has planted this year something over 2,000,000 rose-cuttings at its plant at Niles, Calif. The variety which predominated in this planting is the Manetti. In addition to this we have also planted a new Rosa canina, which is particularly strong growing and makes fine long canes. It is a variety which I secured when I was in Europe, in 1912, from Victor Teschendorff, Dresden, Germany. In addition to this, we are growing Gloire des Rosomanes and De la Grifferaie and a limited quantity of the Veilchenblau, which I have about concluded is going to be a very desirable variety for standards because of its strong canes. If we succeed in getting a good stand of cuttings, we expect to bud at least three-quarter million roses this year. In addition to this, we will have a large quantity of Manetti to sell, because we are planting several hundred thousand cuttings rather close together with a view of having stocks to offer to the trade.
