Presque chaque année, un autre Américain bien connu venait, lui, plusieurs fois par an : l'Admirai Ward. C'était un grand ami de la France; il avait d'ailleurs fait ses études à Paris où, depuis, il revenait fréquemment, chargé de missions par son Gouvernement. Nanti d'une belle fortune. l'Admiral Ward avait des jardins magnifiques et, par suite, élail devenu un des amateurs de roses le plus en vue. La première visile que l'Admirai fit à Pernet-Ducher fui le prélude de très nombreuses rencontres et leurs relations ensemble devinrent tout à fait amicales. C'est au cours de sa première visite que fui déd'iée la rose Mrs. Aaron Ward (1907), qui renconlra un succès .sensationnel puisque cette variété se cultive encore en serres, en Amérique, comme rose à corsage.

The so-called Everblooming Roses include the Hybrid Tea and Pernetiana groups. They do not bloom all the time, but if kept healthy and growing steadily, one crop of flowers succeeds another at brief intervals.
Mrs. Aaron Ward. Hybrid Tea. (Pernet-Ducher, 1907.) Delightful little buds of golden buff, opening to fully double, attractively shaped flowers of tawny gold and pink, with an agreeable fragrance. The plant is dwarf, spreading, with very healthy, holly-like foliage, and always in bloom.
A standard sort for garden and cutting and buttonhole. Flowers are small in heat and the color fades to light pink, otherwise it is almost perfect. Under high cultivation the blooms are much larger and more intensely colored. In all lists of favorite Roses, Mrs. Aaron Ward occupies a high place, and will doubtless continue as a favorite for many years to come. Everybody likes it.
