Autumn Flowering Climbing Roses. II. By Mr. George Laing Paul.
In the first place it will be well to record existing kinds which may be deemed worthy of inclusion in our list of Autumn Climbing Roses. Of the climbing Hybrid Perpetuals, Ards Rover, Brightness of Cheshunt (a much under-rated Rose, with fine foliage and pale scarlet fllowers), Climbing Frau Karl Druschki, Climbing Suzanne Marie Rodocanachi, a fine Pillar Rose, and Climbing Victor Verdier, are perhaps the best.

Duke of Edinburgh Type.—The only English rose which is the head of a type was sent out by George Paul in 1868. The habit of growth is much like that of Jacqueminot, but the foliage is generally longer and larger. The flowers are not permanent in color, burning very quickly in the sun, and are very sparsely produced in the autumn. It is a very beautiful family when grown in a moist, cool climate; but there are few of the members that will do well under our hot sun. The varieties best known, mostly of recent origin, are: Brightness of Cheshunt, Dr. Hooker, Duke of Connaught, Duke of Teck, Robert Marnock, S. Reynolds Hole, Sultan of Zanzibar, The Shah.
