Everblooming Roses
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.
Souvenir du President Carnot. Hybrid Tea. (Pernet-Ducher, 1894.) Rosy white flowers, tinted with flesh-color at the center, of almost perfect form, and somewhat fragrant. The bush is moderately strong, produces long flower-stems, but needs protection from foliage troubles.
An exquisite cutting Rose, resembling the hardy climber Dr. W. Van Fleet in color, although the form is better and the stems are not as strong. It needs plenty of feeding, and is worth it.
