Roses in Bermuda Revisited
(2013)  Page(s) 24.  
Bermuda Yellow Mutabilis Watlington, 1999
This rose was recognized as a sport of 'Mutabilis' by Helga Brichet during her visit to Bermuda...In 1999, it was propagated from a slip by Ronica Watlington. Buds are yellow, streaked with bright orange-red and open lemon-yellow with petals sometimes tinged with pale peach, especially on the reverse. On the second day the five-petalled blooms fade to a pale yellow-tinged white, while on the third day they become pale pink. In all other respects 'Bermuda Yellow Mutabilis' is similar to its parent.
"Chester Cemetery". US Found Rose. Found by Ruth Knopf in South Carolina, this rose will grow to about 4-6ft. (1.2-1.8m) but can grow larger with support. Its canes tend to be long in the habit of Noisettes. New foliage is reddish and mature leaves are medium green. The leaflets have finely serrated edges. Buds are round ending in little points with elongated receptacles and sepals with tiny foliations similar to those of 'Champneys' Pink Cluster', and open to small double, 1 1/2 in. (4cm) clear pink flowers, which grow in clusters or singly at the end of the canes. Slight fragrance. It is important that members of The Bermuda Rose Society are encouraged to propagate this rose as it appears to be lost to cultivation in the USA. "Chester Cemetery" was originally included in the Third DNA Study of roses in the Hampton Park Noisette Study Garden in Charleston, South Carolina, but has since been missing from that Garden."

Emmie Gray. At one time thought to be 'Miss Lowe's Variety', this rose, though obviously a China, was moved to the Mystery class....

Heydon Pink China. ...first shown on the [Bermuda Rose] Society's competitive bench as 'Agrippina'...Although th bush and shape of the flowers are very similar,the colour of 'Heydon Pink China' is markedly different. It was found growing at the Heydon Trust in Somerset. The bush is of medium height, 4-5 ft...and somewhat angular. Leaves are a rich medium-to-dark green, composed of five to seven leaflets, with maked serration, elongated, feathery points. Blooms are borne in loose clusters of 3 to 12....
The buds are round and open to light crimson blooms that are tightly cupped at first, but open wide and loose to show a lot of white around the prominent stigmas and anthers....With age the bloomsbecome purplish pink, not the dark crimson as seen in 'Agrippina'. Petal count varies from 17 to 20...Slightly scented. It has few prickles.

Houston House. ..a sport of the Tea Rose 'Mrs. B. R. Cant' and was discovered by Mrs. George (Connie) Hutchings on a bush growing in her garden...While 'Mrs. B.R. Cnt' is fully double and cupped, her sport opens flat and not as full. In all other aspects these two roses are identical....'Houston House' is flat showing a green eye.
