« Golden Climber », plus récent, est sans doute celui de nos hybrides de wichyraianas, qui produit les plus grandes fleurs, celles-ci très doubles, bien formées, jaune de chrome teinté de cadmium, sont dignes d'un hybride de Thé ou d'un hybride de Pernet. Le rosier est d'une vigueur extraordinaire, très épineux, et muni d'un magnifique feuillage ample, brillant et vert bronzé.

K. P. Jones, Barrington, Rhode Island. Wichuraiana Hybrids.
Where Van Fleet left off, Walter Brownell began, and his work and that of his family is giving us a new and continually improved group of hardy, disease-resistant roses that can be grown with a minimum of effort in our queer New England climate.  From the Brownell Rose Gardens in Little Compton, Rhode Island, in 1933 came the famous Golden Climber rose named for Mrs. Arthur Curtiss James.  This rose, a cross between ‘Mary Wallace’ and a Pernetiana seedling, was the first of a series of hybrid Wichuraiana climbers, all of which are capable of withstanding without special protection most of the severe winters of southern New England. Like many of the hardier climbers of its type, it requires two or three summers to get its feet in the ground, but once it gets a toe-hold its growth will rival that of any other climber grown in the eastern part of the United States.

Mrs. A. C. James is a vigorous climber and produces very large fragrant yellow blooms on fairly long stems. It is listed as the best and largest yellow in the Hybrid Wichuraiana class, but so far it appears to be only spring flowering.
