Detail from an advertisement by Armstrong Nurseries in the 'Sunset Magazine (The Pacific Monthly)' December 1933, page 21. Also advertising 'Mrs. Sam McGredy' and 'Autumn', the accompanying text reads: "Three Brilliant New Roses. Quite new and very rare as yet in Pacific Coast gardens, three of the finest roses ever introduced. [...] BILLY BOILER A startling new Australian Rose of rich scarlet on unbelievably long four-foot stems, unfading in the hottest sun and deliciously fragrant."
