Joan Howarth (HT) (Bees. Ltd.) For purity and delicacy of tint there is hardly any comparison to be made to this rose. The most delicate tones of shell and rose pink blend with glowing carmine; and in the shadows there is rose madder to give depth. It is a first-rate grower, with a good, vigorous habit, and clean, glossy foliage. The perfume is very pronounced and penetrating; a fine rose for garden, decoration, and exhibition. 4./. each.
The first plants imported turned out to be Dorothy Howarth. The second lot have flowered: true to colour, but more time must be given for them to show true form.

JOAN HOWARTH. (H.T.) Raised by BEES, LTD., Liverpool. Awarded a Certificate of Merit at the Provincial Show, 1923. An Ophelia type of flower of a pretty flesh pink colour, deepening at the base. The blooms, which are freely produced on strong upright growths, are very sweetly scented. The plant exhibited was of very vigorous growth, and free of mildew. Altogether a delightful garden Rose, which keeps its colour and shape well. In commerce.
