Dedicated to Dr. Grill, a flower-lover.]

p103.  George Knight.  Tea Roses in New South Wales.
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.
