This last bloom - touched only slightly by frost - of Lady Pirrie was so beautiful that I had to take it home, where she continued to smell for three more days

Everblooming Roses
The so-called Everblooming Roses include the Hybrid Tea and Pernetiana groups. They do not bloom all the time, but if kept healthy and growing steadily, one crop of flowers succeeds another at brief intervals.
Lady Pirrie. Hybrid Tea. (H. Dickon, 1910.) Delightful buds which open quickly to semi-double flowers with large, frilled petals varying in color from coppery fawn to pale pink; not very fragrant. Plant very good, blooming in immense trusses; healthy and hardy.
A charming Rose of fleeting color and too few petals, but so free flowering and willing to grow that it is indispensable for the garden. The flowers must be taken early if wanted for cutting. Easily one of the finest garden Roses and shows no signs of declining popularity although nearly twenty years old. An old and faithful standby.
Book  (1926)  
p45. Lady Pirrie (H. Dickson, 1920): one of the very best decoratives. Coppery-pink and pale fawn-yellow, almost single; blooms in big sprays; lovely buds.

p46. 'Mrs. Arthur Robert Waddell' (Pernet-Ducher, 1908): very much like Lady Pirrie , but a trifle more glowing pink in color and more open in flower. Hard to decide between them.

General List. (83) Lady Pirrie (HT. Hugh Dickson 1910) 3. .....It is stated that a visitor to the raiser's nursery saw a cartload of seedling roses being taken to the fire heap, and begged the life of one for further trial. It is inferred that the rose now bears the name of its rescuer. H. M. Mt. S.
