Hybrid Perpetual Roses.
Mme. Charles Wood
A plant of moderate stature, but one that begins to bloom when very young, the stems seeming hardly able to carry their burden of inflorescence. In color the Mme. Charles Wood is fiery scarlet passing to rosy crimson with a maroon shade. The fragrance is delightfully sweet and comforting. The flowers are large, or very large, and nearly full. The blossoms come in great profusion and are produced almost throughout the season- seldom can one go into the garden without finding one or two blooms.
