Hardy Climbing Roses
Climbing American Beauty. Hybrid Wichuraiana. (Hoopes, Bro. & Thomas Co., 1909.) Brilliant carmine flowers of especially fine form and rich perfume, borne in clusters on a moderately strong, fairly healthy plant.
Early, and very beautiful, but its faded flowers are very unsightly when a few days old especially in hot weather. In a cool season it is splendid. There has been a lot of criticism of this Rose but in spite of the unpleasant things said about it, it has unquestionably the most beautifully shaped flowers of any climber and it is absolutely unique in color. 75 cts. each.

Roses Worth While for Everybody by George C. Thomas, Jr.
For climbing roses in the South, while the Wichuraiana and hardy Climbers will do well, their blooming season is so short compared with other roses which may be grown that they are not recommended.
There are so many well-known Climbing Teas, Noisettes, and Climbing Hybrid Teas which give good results and from which bloom may be expected during the entire growing season, that it is not considered advisable to recommend as yet some of the newer European introductions of supposedly hardy roses which are put out as being of everblooming habit.
Climbing American Beauty. Climbing Hybrid Perpetual. Rich rosy crimson; strong, vigorous growth. Gives remarkable amount of spring bloom, often with long stems; practically no summer or fall bloom. Loses foliage early.

Hardy Climbing and Trailing Roses
Climbing American Beauty. — A very valuable American rose descended from American Beauty, Wichuriana and a tea rose. It is of vigorous habit and the flowers are of the same color and fragrance as the popular variety whose name it bears, though they are not so large. It is a wonderfully free bloomer under favorable conditions. See illustration made from a photograph taken upon the grounds of Mrs. I. B. Hosford near Red Bank, N. J.

Climbing American Beauty (Hybrid Perpetual) (Hoopes, Bro. & Thomas).
A seedling from American Beauty with Wichuraiana and Tea blood in its veins, raised by Hoopes, Bro. & Thomas, Westchester, Pa., who say of it, "Same color, size and fragrance as American Beauty, with the addition of the climbing habit, good foliage and better blooming qualities. One plant of this new rose will produce twenty times as many flowers in June as the old American Beauty, besides blooming occasionally during the summer; blooms, 3 to 4 inches across; has proved perfectly hardy and stands heat and drought as well as any rose in our collection."
