One of the consistently outstanding roses since the opening of the gardens in the early 1940's has been Soeur Therese, a yellow hybrid tea of exceptional winter hardiness and vigor. The flower itself has few petals and opens fast, but no other yellow rose has this much vigor and hardiness. Consider the possibilities if Soeur Therese were crossed with roses that transfer good form, ample petalage, and slow-opening qualities.

Another good yellow is ‘Soeur Therese’. We do not disbud this bush, which is tall with an odd branchng habit. Each branch swings out and up, terminating in five upright buds. Someone has likened the golden buds to lighted candles and the description, we think is very apt.

Soeur Thérèse makes a wonderful bush of almost Hybrid Perpetual growth; its buds are bronze-yellow, almost like 'Mme. Alexandre Dreux,' but the flowers fade... After 'Max Krause', the race for second place among yellows in my garden lies between 'Mrs. Pierre S. du Pont', 'Golden Dawn' (absolutely the finest non-Pernetiana yellow rose in the world), 'Président Charles Hain,' 'Mrs. E.P. Thom', 'Eldorado', 'Roselandia', ' and 'Soeur Thérèse'.
