G. A. Williams. Modern Roses [column]. Yes….I know the rose – The Bride – it was quite a good rose and up to about twenty years ago it was largely grown. It was a sport from ‘Catherine Mermet’ and raised by a man named May in 1885. Sometimes the pink is very prominent, at other times the bloom is nearly all white with the pink outside petals becoming quite blushed.
