Dr. Grill tea. Bonnaire, 1886. Parentage: 'Ophirie' x 'Souvenir de Victor Hugo'. [Author cites information from different sources. From the Journal des Roses comes the following: "Sown in 1883 by Mons Bonnaire... the seeds, which were very numerous (about 200) didn't sprout more than a small quantity (5 or 6 or so)... only one was found to be vigorous and worthy of the attention of the breeder, who studied it several years before releasing it to commerce..." Dedicated to Dr. Grill, a flower-lover.]

There is no more striking feature than to see a Rose bush eight or nine feet high, build in porportion and covered in bloom. I would suggest as some of the most suitable for this purpose - Corallina, Mdm. Antoine Mari, Marie Van Houtte, Mdm. Lambard, Mdm. Charles, Dr. Grill, Francois Dubreuil, Mdlle Christine de Noue and Mrs. Dunlop Best. This latter makes a nice bush up to six feet.
p105. ibid. Dr Grill:- Yellow, shaded copper, a quick grower, very vigorous, makes a splendid specimen plant; can be strongly recommended, as it is free from most diseases; should be grown more.
