New Roses 1929
May Wettern (HT) (A. Dickson, 1928}. The outer side of the petals passes from deep rose to rosy pink and finally to bright rose, the blending of tones creating a perfect harmony. The bloom is of moderate fullness having immense deep wide petals of solid texture, their formation making a beautifully built, exceptionally long high pointed conical flower. The growth is almost its dominant feature, and may truly be described as vigorous, but with all forming an evenly balanced tree. Declared to completely supersede Madame Abel Chatenay. 5/- each.
30 petals. Deeper than Chatenay. Very promising but it must needs be good to justify its claim to superiority
