Two floribundas deserve mention. 'Lilac Charm', the custodian of a Royal National Rose Society Gold medal has charm indeed. The single flowers of lilac-mauve open to reveal golden-yellow anthers on red filaments, and the effect is very pleasing. The other, 'Africa Star', was raised by Mrs. West, a Rhodesian house-wife. The very full blooms of lilac, shaded magenta, are most attractive and will delight the ladies. It is a pity the parentage of both remains the secret of the raisers.

In those days there were no perpetual Roses, except the old Four-season and the Pasten Rose. The popular favourites at that period were the Tuscany, Carmine, Celestial, African Black, a host of other sorts of that stamp, and the Bath white Moss de Meaux.

"Some Early-Flowering Ramblers."
Climbing Roses seem to be extra vigorous this season, in contrast to the dwarf kinds, which, apparently, found the hot, dry summer of last year too exhaustive of their energies, and old plants especially seem much weakened in consequence. The foliage and growth of climbers are strong and healthy, whilst the flower trusses also are extra vigorous. [...]
Aglaia is very free on old established plants. The small, creamy yellow blooms develop in big clusters, which have long stalks.

There is Aimee Vibert, a very old Rose — indeed, one of the oldest we have in cultivation ; it was sent out by Vibert in 1827. It is said by Ketten in their catalogue to have been a sport of the Noisette " Repens ; " it is pure white

Messrs. Jackman & Son's popular exhibition at Regent's Park has now been brought to a close, and we may fittingly call attention at its termination to some of the charming novelties which it has been the means of introducing to our notice. [...]
One of the finest novelties, however, was alba magna, of which we give a woodcut representation (fig. 140).  This has the leaves either simple and cordate or ternate with ovate leaflets, and woolly; and six to eight-sepaled flowers, the sepals being exceptionally broad, fully 3 inches across, roundish ovate in outline, apiculate, necessarily very much overlapped; the flowers are quite 8 inches across, and of a pure white, without a dash of the purple tint which so often soils the purity of these white flowers; the anthers are purplish brown, and the buds woolly and erect.  It appears to us to be the finest of all the whites yet raised, and the most perfect flower, as regards shape, which has yet been obtained.
