Hybrid Perpetual Roses.
Caroline de Sansal
A Rose of rather striking appearance as to color and form of blossom. It is rose-color, deeper at the center and edged with bronze. The flowers are large, full and flat and fragrant. There are very few Roses presenting the bronze appearance about the edges as a regular feature, although one sees this luster occasionally upon other varieties. The growth of the Caroline de Sansal Rose is vigorous, and the plant flowers several times during the season. One can count upon a display of blossoms both in summer and autumn.
