Rosarians seem always seeking the extreme in color, size, form, and habit, wherefore Ami Quinard HT. (Mallerin, 1927; int. U.S. by C.-P. Co.), was welcomed for its long-pointed, blackish garnet bud, opening to a loose, semi-double, cupped, fragrant red bloom so dark as to seem almost black. Persistent bud-selection has increased its number of petals, and this variety is a standard of dark beauty with its vigorous, profuse-blooming plant, which deserved the honours received at Bagatelle, in France, and at Barcelona, in Spain.
p12 A very desirable rambler which carries the unforgettable fragrance of the magnolia is Aviateur Blériot, R. (Fauque, 1910). It is of the Wichuraiana type, with slender canes which like to sprawl, and has beautiful varnished small foliage. The buds are light orange-yellow and the flower creamy yellow which soon fades to white.
p203 The description of the Wichuraiana climber Aviateur Blériot would fit the charming climber Oriflame, LC (Paul, 1914), save that the colors vary from deep rose pink to buff.

p18. A great German hybridizer has in 'Barcelona', HT (Kordes, 1932) int. U.S. by B. & A.) combined American and English red roses in a great and fragrant, dark crimson, non-burning flower of real merit, coming on a good plant. Illustrated on page 17.

That very great grower of roses for the greenhouse, the late E. G. Hill, started a strong rose life-stream in his variety Columbia. From this came as a sport, Briarcliff, HT. (Briarcliff Greenhouses, 1926), yet one of the standards in greenhouse and garden.

The production of a brilliant German hybridizer who works with discrimination and success is ‘Cathrine Kordes’, HT (Kordes, int. U.S. by Dreer and H. & S. 1930). Its large, long-pointed, blood-red bud opens into a lasting, dark scarlet, long stemmed bloom. A good plant produces these flowers successively, but not too plentifully.

A large, yet dainty, single yellow Hybrid tea rose is ‘Cecil’, HT (B.R. Cant, 1926), which will be found adequately illustrated on page 121.

Not often does a rose show promptly the distinction which belongs to Comtesse Vandal, HT (M. Leenders; int. U.S. by J. & P. Co., 1932), and for once this writer can express satisfaction that the printer has quite adequately shown its size and peculiar richness of petalage and bloom habit. It is of very high garden value. (Plant patent 38). See illustration on opposite page.

Interestingly, several provinces in Australia resemble the eastern United States sufficiently so that a talented grower, Alister Clark, has created roses which fit both locations. Countess of Stradbroke, C. HT. (A. Clark; int. Hazlewood Bros., 1928), is one of his very great contributions. It produces, sparingly, immense flowers of the darkest and richest red, with almost black shades. These blooms are fragrant as well as impressive. They vary somewhat from the general character of Mr. Clark’s loose-formed roses, carrying thirty to forty richly toned petals, uniting in a symmetrical flower.

A lop-sided name is 1937. Daily Mail Scented Rose. (HT. Archer, 1927), which brings high fragrance into a very rich and well-shaped rose in good crimson and scarlet shades, abundantly produced on an extremely vigorous plant which in England and on the Pacific Coast blooms continually, though but scantily recurrent after spring in the eastern United States.

A tremendous, full, fragrant Hybrid Tea rose is David O. Dodd, HT (Vestal 1926), produced by the late E. G. Hill, which escaped from the greenhouse into the garden, where it does exceedingly well. Its blooms are richly crimson, and in Little Rock, Arkansas, from which it has been distributed, it is deservedly popular.
