Everblooming Roses
The so-called Everblooming Roses include the Hybrid Tea and Pernetiana groups. They do not bloom all the time, but if kept healthy and growing steadily, one crop of flowers succeeds another at brief intervals.
Sensation. Hybrid Tea. (J. H. Hill Co., 1922.) Enormous scarlet-crimson blooms of fine deep form, double— 30 to 35 petals of great size and substance; very sweetly scented. Plant is strong and very active in sending up new blooming shoots.
Superb in the garden at times. Under unfavorable conditions the blooms are ill-shaped, and purple petals appear among the red ones. In autumn it is splendid, blackish red. Steadily gaining in favor among the garden wise and is well regarded among red Roses. $1.50 each.
