A goodly number of really useful and distinct new roses have been introduced these last few years, among the best of which are Antoine Rivoire. This variety is the result of crossing Lady Mary Fitzwilliam and Dr. Grill, two of our freest flowerers, although Lady Mary Fitzwilliam is a weak grower. The color is a deep rosy flesh, with a tinge of soft copper; it is a good grower, with large-sized blooms, full, and camellia-like in shape.

In 1894 this rose [Lady Mary Fitzwilliam] with Dr. Grill produced Antoine Revoire, a rose that is holding its own among the newer Hybrid Teas of today, and is still by far the best rose of its shade in this country.
