New Roses for 1938 by European and Other Raisers
Lemania (Hybrid Tea) (Heizmann).—Red with a blackish velvet sheen; exterior very deep red. The flower is very large and full, of superb form, and of the greatest elegance. The bud is very dark, giving the impression of a black Rose. The growth is very vigorous furnished with splendid disease-resisting foliage. The truly majestic flowers are carried on long rigid stems. This superb variety will be greatly appreciated by reason of its charm and novelty. Gold Medal, Saverne.
