Griffith J. Buck. Roses Are Shrubs?
'Country Music'. 'Paddy McGredy' x [('World's Fair' x 'Floradora') x 'Summer Pippen']. This daughter of 'Summer Pippen' is more restrained in growth. A four-year-old plant may be expected to have a height of 36 inches, with a similar spread. The large, medium green, leathery foliage clothes the plant well and provides a background for the large flowers borne in medium-size clusters. There is a good showing of flower color from early June until late fall. This rose carries the flower color of its parents, the light red of 'Paddy McGredy' appearing on the reverse of the petals and in the stippling on the light rose face of the petals. There is a pleasant clove scent.
