Roses as Flowering Shrubs
(Nov 1959)  Page(s) 37.  
(listed under 'Francofurtana') A smaller flowered, more purple form, intensely fragrant. Semi-climber, 6-7 ft. Previously listed as R. gallica 'Pope Pius IX'.
(Nov 1959)  Page(s) 37.  
(under 'Francofurtana') The grey-green downy leaves cover a compact, thorny bush, which bears neat, flat, fully double flowers, quilled and quartered, with button eyes. Very sweet and beautiful. Vigorous, 5 ft. x 3 ft. Rare. Figured in Redouté.
(Nov 1959)  Page(s) 38.  
(Gallica) A rather open bush; semi-double flowers shewing yellow stamens. Unusual colours; dark crimson-purple at first, quickly nottled with maroon, and afterwards turning to purple with pink spots. 4' x 3'
(Nov 1959)  Page(s) 38.  
(Gallica) The same as 'Alain Blanchard', but the flowers are striped, not spotted.
(Nov 1959)  Page(s) 42.  
(Jackson & Perkins, USA 1949) Bud ovoid, large flowers, very double, 55-60 petals, cupped, fragrant, rose-pink with deeper reverse; perpetual flowering. Foliage dark, leathery. Plant bushy and erect growing, a first class shrub rose.
(Nov 1959)  Page(s) 38.  
1837. One of the most perfectly shaped of all the gallicas. Abundant petals forming an evenly shaped flower, large, flat, but filled even in the centre; light rosy red fading to lilac-pink. Small leaves, bushy. Very fragrant. 3' x 3'.
(Nov 1959)  Page(s) 38.  
(Gallica) Late flowering, blush; similar in shape to 'Maiden's Blush'. Young wood a good green. 3' x 3'.
(Nov 1959)  Page(s) 40.  
(R. gallica maxima or splendens) Supposed to have been introduced by the Crusaders from Damascus, and has borne for many years the erroneous name 'Red Damask'. A low bushy shrub up to 4 ft. x 4 ft. and much branched. One of the showiest of roses; the bright tyrian rose flowers in June are borne all over the bush and are few petalled but shapely. Long pointed leaves. Recommended.

('Rouge Eblouissante') 1823. Small bush with very dark green leaves. The flowers are also small, tightly packed with petals of intense cherry-crimson, flushed purple. A well-covered bush is certainly a notable assembly. The most intense colour among the gallicas. Recommended. 4' x 3'.
