'Cornelia'. 1925. Parentage unrecorded, but it so well conforms to the accepted style of these roses that we may presume ‘Trier’ or ‘Aglaia’ is in its ancestry, if only on account of its scent, which is pronouncedly soft, rich, and musky. A splendid, vigorous bush, with shining, dark green, smallish leaves. Even the small, summer flower-sprays arch gracefully, bearing tight, unattractive buds developing into small rosette blooms with yellow stamens of soft coppery apricot fading to creamy pink. The big sprays which appear late in the growing season are particularly good in bud, being of rich, warm, coppery coral, and a far better colour when open than in the summer. These autumnal sprays may be 18 inches long and are superlative for cutting. 5 feet by 7 feet as a bush, higher if trained on a wall. The scent is especially pervasive
