Several later [after Harisonii] crosses have also resulted in yellow garden roses, which contain the characteristical carotenoids. I will first mention 'Star of Persia' (R. foetida x Trier). The slightly brownish yellow of the curiously formed petals contains approx. 70 mg% carotenoids. Among them are again epoxydes dominant (total of 80% with about half as Violaxanthine). This rose forms however beside this already significant amounts of the reduced carotenoids, among which C27-Lycopinol and others have been detected.

STAR OF PERSIA. Rev. J. H. Pemberton, 1919. Moderately vigorous climber, generally classed as a hybrid of Rosa foetida. It bears large, single or semi-double, bright yellow flowers which do not fade white. The foliage is very bad, and it sometimes fails to bloom at all. Not a great deal unlike Le Reve but perhaps the flowers are a trifle smaller and a shade brighter. Very hardy.
