Hybrid Perpetual Roses.
One is first impressed with the extremely sweet fragrance of the Dinsmore. Then the dark scarlet color is noted, and the general contour of the double flower is taken into consideration, and it becomes a favorite. The blooming is constant and profuse. The plant is vigorous, with long shoots, and is exceptionally free from disease and insects. All of its virtues considered, the Dinsmore is a Rose that should find a place in every garden- especially where there is a pretense of variety.
