The Roses of 1882 ....
W. Paul has enriched our range with a delightful variety with Lady Sheffield (hybrid perpetual, W. Paul, bred by Postans). Bloom is light carmine-pink (very brilliant and lasting colouring, which does not fade to sad lilac), finely formed like Alfred Colomb and Marie Baumann, but upright, not arching as the latter (an advantage, breeding success); centifolia-fragarnce. Smooth wood, almost without prickles; large, firm, well-shaped foliage. To my taste, as I consider Marie Baumann as one of the most perfect roses, a rose of First rank. Rank: 1.
