An entirely new group of Hybrid Musk Roses has been introduced by the late Mr. Pemberton. They form useful flowering shrubs, and should be treated similarly to these. He gave us Danae and Moonlight in 1913, Pax in 1918, and Vanity 1921.

Mrs. H. R. Darlington. Roses for Hedges.
Two of Mr. Pemberton's Hybrid Musks, the yellow 'Danae' and the gleaming white Moonlight are quite suitable for hedges about five feet high. 'Moonlight' is specially good on account of the strong rods of dark red wood clothed with dark foliage which it throws up from the base and the lasting qualities of its great panicles of bloom.

Rev. J. H. Pemberton. The Adaptability Of The Rose.
Moonlight is generally considered a leading sort; colour lemon white with beautiful golden stamens. To see it at its best it should be cut in the bud state a day or two before it is required for decoration and allowed to open out in water. If wanted for Christmas Day' cut four days before, cut it on St.Thomas' Day. The wood is claret colour and the foliage dark green, the leaves remaining on the plant until the new spring growth begins to push. By reason of this retention of foliage it is valuable as a hedge.
