....My plant of 'Arcadia' came from a plant growing in the vicinity of Woods Hole, MA that was discovered and identified by Dan Russo and Vernon Brown, rosarians specialising in the walsh ramblers. The flowers are small, crimson-scarlet (vermillion) double rosettes growing in clusters on a vigorous plant. A rose named 'Arcadia' grows at Sangerhausen, but appears to be a different rose. It has darker leaves, is a lighter colour and is not as full as those of the Massachusetts clone.

Debutante .....Long hanging clusters of small, double, light soft pink flowers fade to palest pink. The color is much lighter than 'Dorothy Perkins'. A rose with medium pink flowers was sold incorrectly as 'Debutante' for many years before the true variety was rediscovered on Cape Cod near Walsh's place of work. Little scent can be detected. There is one spectacular summer bloom and no repeat. The canes have shiny leaves and few prickles and will reach a height of 15 to 16 feet (5 meters).

Gallande Syn: 'Galande', 'La Guirlande'. Breeder unknown. Date unknown. Parentage unknown. Class hybrid sempervirens. Little is known about this pretty rose. It only grows at the Roseraie du Val-de-Marne in France. The medium, pink buds show deep pink blotches. The flowers are small to medium, double, cupped and pale pink aging to white.

La Fiamma ....The breeder described them as flame colored, but actually the small, single flowers open as light crimson cups with white petal bases. They fade to pink and tend to close back up as they mature giving the large clusters of flowers a "bunch of grapes" look, which distinguishes the rose from 'Hiawatha' along with its less bright color. The plant has a potential growth of about 16 feet (5 meters).
