A class of Roses known as the Penzance Briers, developed by Lord Penzance from the common Sweetbrier, Rosa rubiginosa. They have deliciously scented foliage, and bear charming single or half-double flowers along their arching canes, which look best rising from a lower undergrowth. Useful in parks, along driveways, and in shrubberies. When well established, they are very hardy. These Roses are $1 each for strong, field-grown plants.
Flora McIvor. (Penzance, 1894.) Small, white flowers with a slight rosy flush, very fragrant and freely produced. Plant very strong, with long, arching canes.
