The New Seedling Roses of 1913. By H. E. Molyneux, Hon. Vice-President N.R.S.
The National Rose Society's Awards. Gloucester Show. -- July 15th, 1913.
Mrs. Archie Gray (Hugh Dickson, Ltd.), Gold Medal.— This is an exhibition Rose of such beauty that it will be a garden Rose too. A cream self of magnificent shape and all the points of an exhibition variety with a delightful fragrance coupled with a free flowering habit. By many it was thought the finest Rose in the Show. I hesitated between this variety and another named Gorgeous of this raiser's raising, and I shall not be able to finally decide until I have grown them both. Not yet in commerce.
