New Roses 1932. Clb. Daily Mail Scented Clb HT (Archer 1930). F. 5. Vigorous climbing aport of the comparatively new variety 'Daily Mail Scented'. On yearling plants canes six feet long have been produced and it looks as if it will prove to be one of the finest deep crimson climbers so far introduced. The quality of the blooms is even better than on dwarf plants and quite a surprise was occasioned when the number of the petals in various blooms were counted. Some flowers produced as few as 25 to 30, while others secured as high as 65. On old plants we have no hesitation whatever in declaring that this variety will produce show flowers of the highest excellence as the quality and shape of petals are ideal in this respect. The rich deep crimson is held particularly well, while in addition, the name is fully justified as the blooms are possessed of a rich sweet fragrance so much desired in a red rose. For a climber the plants are free flowering and in this respect 'Climbing Daily Mail Scented' is better than any other red climber so far introduced. When better known this will be one of the most popular varieties in the Rose World, E. 2/- each.

The nearest approach to the ideal red exhibition rose, in the writer’s opinion is produced by Climbing Daily Mail Scented. This variety was imported late in 1930, but, owing to have arrived after the lists were made up, did not receive any published comment. In colour it presents a rich fiery, blackish crimson, with large petals and splendid form. As the winner of the “Daily Mail” 250 pounds cup for fragrance, its perfume is beyond question. (It should be mentioned that this cup was won by the dwarf parent, but as the climber is a genuine sport its fragrance is unimpared.) The petals, in number show a remarkable variation with wider limits than usual. On a recent inspection by two local growers, three blooms were picked from young, unforced plants. One counted 15 petals, while the other two were 55 and 62 respectively.
