Rivers's Single Moss is inclined to be semi-double. This is a remarkably luxuriant grower, as is the Single Crimson Moss, a seedling which bloomed for the first time in the season of 1836; a rose quite worth notice, for its colour is beautiful; and, as it is a true Moss Rose, and bears seed abundantly, it will, I hope, be the parent of some first-rate varieties.
