New Roses 1932. Molly Darragh Pernt. (S. McGredy & Sons, 1931)  F. 2. Outside of petals old rose with similar shades only lighter on the inside. This makes a striking combination, particularly in the open flowers where the yellow base comes into prominence. The petals number forty and the growth is medium with a rich glossy foliage, while the fragrance is tea scented. A.H.M.Mt.P.S.

Harry H. Hazlewood.  The New Roses of 1932. 
Molly Darragh. A very striking colour combination, with the lower inside half of the petal deep yellow and the upper half old rose. The reverse of the petal is a darker shade. Though described as an H.T., it is obviously of part Pernetiana origin.

New Roses 1932. Molly Darragh (HT. S. McGredy & Son 1931) Brilliant bright old rose toward edge of petals, gradually deepening to orange yellow, providing an entirely new combination of colours. Flowers large, pointed, of perfect shape and form, with light tea fragrance; dark bronzy green mildew proof foliage, dark red stems, vigorous and upright growth. 4/- each.
Moderate growth with flowers carrying 40 petals. The two-toned nature of the flower is a most striking combination. If growth does not fail it will be an acquisition.
