Evangeline R[ambler] No rebloom. Outstanding fragrance. Habit [diagram 3] Walsh 1906. [Provenance Russo]. Single pink flowers an inch or so across, rosy at the edges and pale toward the center, softening to white, the petals have a distinctly wavy and pert twist to them which give tremendous life to the blooms and the overall display. We are very grateful to Dan Russo for bringing this correctly named rose to our collection and helping us to correct an old error.

Editor's footnote: The Senior Editor, who loves hardy climbers, wonders why Mr. O'Neal does not mention the Walsh climbers - all truly hardy; mostly single, and of delightful forms as well of great vigour. Seemingly they are almost "out", though excelling most of the newcomers in sheer beauty. At Breeze Hill we are establishing a long hedge-fence of Walsh beauties, in his memory, including Paradise, Evangeline, Hiawatha, Milky Way, Wedding Bells, Excelsa, Troubadour, Sweetheart, Minnehaha, and others. Notice the pleasant names!
