From Wills cigarette cards, Roses – a series of 40 cards. Issued in 1936. No 37SHOT SILK(Hybrid Tea)Introduced 1924 Bright rosy-cerise, overshot with orangeA Rose of fine, upright, compact growth that gives an abundance of bloom right through the summer and until the frost cuts it in the late autumn. In the half-open stage the blooms are seen at their best, but later they are fleeting; nevertheless, they retain their beauty to the end. Delightfully fragrant. The foliage is a bright green, free of disease. It is a variety that requires rather hard pruning to three eyes the first week in April, as its blooming propensities are apt to weaken the plant. Awarded a Gold Medal of the National Rose Society.
