TWO NEW ROSES.
Last season we introduced the truly ever-blooming rose "Santa Rosa".  It at once attracted wide attention for its vigor, brilliancy of color and wonderful blooming qualities, and it seems necessary to call attention to the fact that the two new roses, one the "Burbank", purchased and named by W. Atlee Burpee & Co., of Philadelphia, and the other the "Santa Rosa", sent out by ourselves last season, though coming from the same combination are quite different in form and color of flower, growth and other respects.  Both are perfect gems, and no other rose will give greater satisfaction than these will when once established; they are not only in name but in fact absolutely continuous bloomers throughout every day of the year, and without doubt will produce far more blooms during the whole year than any rose before known.  It is beyond comprehension how any plant can keep up such a constant exhibition of lovely flowers as these do and still remain in the most perfect vigor of health; not a leaf has ever shown rust, mildew or other weakness or defect on thousands of the plants during all their past five years of existence.
Of "Santa Rosa", the absolutely ever-blooming rose of loveliest form and color, we have very large field-grown bushes only, to offer this season.  Price, each $1.  Per ten, $5.  Address W. Atlee Burpee & Co., Philadelphia, Pa., if you wish for the "Burbank" rose; we have none of them for sale.
