The Garden 64: 465 (September 28, 1907)HYBRID BRIAR ROSE UNA.Of the many early-flowering garden Roses that hybridists have given us, the above variety must be regarded as one of the best. The handsome tawny yellow, Tea-like buds expand into fine large blossoms of quite 4 inches diameter, bearing two rows of petals of a lovely creamy white shade of colour. The flowers are produced in clusters of from three to six, and appear all along the growths if these latter are left to their own devices. The growth of the Rose is Briar-like in its robustness, but exhibits its hybrid nature in the reddish foliage, wood and prickles. Una would be a delightful Rose to mingle with the Penzance Briars or Carmine Pillar, but I think hedges of this kind will be in most request. A raised bank of good loam, planted on its summit with Una and just left to run wild, would make an ideal Rose hedge. There is no form in which such Roses are better displayed than in arched growths, and, of course, one makes this possible by planting on raised banks. The illustration shows this Rose at Netherwood, Hawick, N.B.
