There are lots of other interesting tea descriptions. Some I've never heard of at all. I'm surprised at the number of red teas introduced at that time too.

I've just uploaded an illustration of a 'Cornelia Cook' bud from the J. E. Jackson, Gainesville, Georgia 1902 catalogue. These growers claim to be the "largest Rose growers in the South", so their catalogue might be of particular interest for found roses in the southern States. The accompanying description for the illustration (same page) is:

"Cornelia Cook - This beautiful Rose is in great demand for its magnificent buds, which are large, perfect and pure white."
