p1. Front cover: ‘Gladsome’. This Alister Clark rambler with multiflora parentage looks not unlike ‘Kew Rambler’, and flowers fairly late in the season. Several sources give its introduction date as 1937. Little is known about it. Tid Alston (whose parents were good friends of the Clarks) says that she can remember it always being in their Oaklands garden, even before she could put a name to it. John Nieuwesteeg says that he obtained the rose from Robert Peace, who in turn received it in the form of cuttings (like rootstock material) from Sam Gough of South Morang, who was a keen propagator of roses.

p270 ‘Gladsome’. Modern. Rambler. Medium pink. This lovely Rambler bears clusters of bright pink, single blooms that look very attractive against the abundant, mid-green foliage. Each bloom has a central boss of golden yellow stamens, and the petals are almost white at their bases. ‘Gladsome’ is a useful variety for disguising unattractive walls or fences, alternatively, it can be trained as a pillar rose. Zones 5-9. Clark, Australia, 1937. Parentage unknown.
