"New Roses for the Garden" by Charles E. F. Gersdorff
'Blends' is the term which for convenience I give to new color combinations that have appeared in our Hybrid-teas in recent years. Some beautiful and fascinating colorings have been obtained and such blooms are truly the aristocrats of the garden.
[...] England, Ireland, and America have not been backward in competition with France, in the production of these beautiful Blends. [...] Edith Part (McGredy, 1914) is very distinct in its blending of colors; a rich red suffused and shaded deep salmon and apricot yellow, darker in the bud state, sweetly scented and a good bloomer.
