American Belle rose photo

American Gardening Volume 14 page 337 (June 1893) The American Belle i a sport from American Beauty, and originated with John Burton, a florist of Philadelphia, Pa., in 1888. The American Belle i not quite a strong a grower as the Beauty, but has plenty of vigor to make good, long flower-stems. It is a very free bloomer for so large a rose, producing more good flowers than its parent. The color is a rich, deep pink, fading with age to a beautiful light silvery pink. One of its strong points is that the color is good when the flower is old, and it does not turn purple, as does the Beauty. In form it greatly resemble its parent, although it is not quite so full in the center. The blossoms are too large to wear, but are very suitable for decorations and table bouquets. The cut shows half a dozen blooms and partly opened buds about one-half natural size.
