'Mrs. M. H. Walsh' rose References
Website/Catalog  (1932)  Page(s) 48.  
Mrs. M. H. Walsh  HW. (M. H. Walsh, 1911).  small, very double, pure white flowers in immense clusters, freely produced by a vigorous, creeping plant with very fine foliage.  Midseason to late.  it makes a good climber but its peculiar excellence is its adaptability to trailing or ground-cover purposes.

Editor.  A Great Rosarian Gone;  The passing of M. H. Walsh.
Never will the Editor forget the exquisite beauty of a plant of the lovely white trailer Mrs. M. H. Walsh, exhibited at one of the earlier New York flower shows.  Its long, flexible, pure white twigs depended from a top-worked plant some six feet high, and it was a shower, a cascade, of chaste beauty.

....and the hardly less notable Mrs. M. H. Walsh, a pure white double flowered Wichuraiana hybrid with distinct creeping habit and exquisite foliage.

President S. E. Hillger, of the Auburn Rose Society, suggests the following native or species roses, in addition to the hardy climbers, of which most are suitable. The Editor tells me that Mrs. M. H. Walsh is a better trailer for slopes and banks than Rosa Wichuraiana, and that the wonderful railroad-slope plantings along the Pennsylvania and the New Haven roads are largely of Dorothy Perkins and similar roses, such as Excelsa, and others that form long shoots rather than heavy canes.

Rose Notes.  By the Editor and Others.
Getting Acquainted with the National Rose Society of England. — The Honorable Secretary of the National Rose Society of England, Mr. Courtney Page, has long been a welcome correspondent with the editorial office of the
American Rose Annual. An inquiry during the autumn of 1919 as to the possibility of obtaining colored lantern-slides of American roses for showing to the members of the National Rose Society, brought about the gathering of a complimentary set of such lantern-slides, which, early in December, 1919, was sent to the National Rose Society with the Christmas compliments and best wishes of the officers of the American Rose Society and many of its members.  The set included sixty-two beautifully colored slides, and a message of greeting and good wishes from President Robert Pyle. The pictures used in preparing the lantern-slides covered the M. H. Walsh roses, Hiawatha, Evangeline, Excelsa, Delight, Sweetheart, Paradise, Lady Gay, and Mrs. M. H. Walsh.

Editor.  New Uses of Climbing Roses
It may be noted that Rosa Wichuraiana is naturally a trailer and but reluctantly a climber. The species itself, as well as its hybrids, such as Alberic Barbier, for instance, serve best for protective or beautifying cover use. One of the Walsh hybrids, named Mrs. M. H. Walsh, is a persistent and very beautiful trailer, with its double white flowers and its pleasing foliage.
