Everblooming Roses
The so-called Everblooming Roses include the Hybrid Tea and Pernetiana groups. They do not bloom all the time, but if kept healthy and growing steadily, one crop of flowers succeeds another at brief intervals.
Flame of Fire. Hybrid Tea. (S. McGredy & Son, 1917.) Large, long-pointed buds and double blooms of pure orange-flame, borne singly on strong stems; moderately fragrant. Plant of open habit.
Color is striking and blooms are very perfect when well grown but it is rather difficult and demands special attention.

Gold Medal to  Flame of Fire (Pernetiana, S. McGredy & Son). This is a very fine Rose,  of sturdy upright growth, with  shiny  green foliage.  The blooms, which are freely produced on stout stems,  are of a  medium size, very  showy,  and  sweetly  perfumed.   The colour is a deep orange flame.  This is a very  fine decorative and bedding  Rose, perhaps best described as an improved Madame  E. Herriot.  This Rose also received a certificate of merit at the Summer Show in 1915. It is in commerce.

Flame of Fire (Hybride de Thé). — Celle-ci est une rose pour massifs et la décoration, elle est des plus attrayantes. La couleur est flamme orange foncé pur, intensivement brillante, et merveilleusement florifère. C'est une rose de végétation forte, tenant ses fleurs parfaitement dressées. Peu de roses sont aussi attrayantes pour massifs, et celle-ci ayant une bonne végétation et étant très florifère, nous pensons qu'elle sera beaucoup demandée pour le jardin et les travaux de décoration. Parfum délicat. Certificat de Mérite N. R. S.
