p156. Screens were best covered by cultivars with dense and persistent or evergreen foliage: 'Alberic Barbier', 'Jersey Beauty', 'Jules Levacher', 'Paul Ploton', and 'Purity'. 

p172. 'Paul Ploton' [Barbier, 1910].  Rosa wichurana x 'Mme Norbert Levavasseur'.  The flowers are small (3.0 - 3.5 cm), and open out into full rosettes which are very double and flat. The colour is a rich, glowing crimson, sometimes with a hint of purple at the centre and, even when fading, always more crimson than pink (plate 105). The backs of the petals are pale pink – quite a contrast. They are borne in large open clusters, some ten to twenty-five in a spray, and start to flower in midseason.  The plant is a vigorous, once flowering, with fine dark foliage, rather puckered but untouched by mildew until late.
