"Wild Rose"
Comtesse Cecile de Chabrillant.—This is one of the most exquisitely formed Roses we have: it was raised by Marest, and sent out in 1859, and if not the only Rose he ever raised, certainly was the only one by which his name is likely to be remembered. It is of a clear satiny-rose, with the petals most beautifully folded, more like the form of a good Persian Ranunculus. It is not very vigorous in growth, although I cannot regard it, as some do, as a moderate grower. The wood is short, but the blooms are freely produced. I remember when we used to look out regularly for the exquisite blooms that good old Mr. Hedge, of Colchester, used to exhibit of it but now "none so poor as to do it reverence." Very pretty is the verdict, but a great deal too small.
