New Seedling Roses Raised by Walter Easlea.
I have much pleasure to announce that I shall distribute in May my beautiful novelty, Cherry Page (H.T.) It is a variety of most attractive colouring. I have requested several artists to describe its extraordinary tint, but all agreed it was a most unique shade that baffled description. The nearest approach would be glowing carmine, suffused with golden yellow at base. The flower is not full, being little more than single; but the buds are of exquisite form and most freely produced upon stout erect growths, almost H.P. like in their sturdiness. The expanded flowers possess huge petals with a wealth of yellow stamens, that give quite a golden glow, which, combined with the reddish brown foliage, will make it an invaluable variety for all decorative purposes. Both as a summer and autumnal bloomer it is superb, and amid the thousand varieties cultivated at Danecroft, Cherry Page has attracted much notice from visitors.
The stock of plants is very limited, but as I have been requested by many clients to introduce the Rose as early as possible, I have decided to do so this spring.
