"Some Early-Flowering Ramblers."
Climbing Roses seem to be extra vigorous this season, in contrast to the dwarf kinds, which, apparently, found the hot, dry summer of last year too exhaustive of their energies, and old plants especially seem much weakened in consequence. The foliage and growth of climbers are strong and healthy, whilst the flower trusses also are extra vigorous. [...]
Goldfinch is another excellent early Rose for arches, as its growth is exceedingly vigorous. There is just a touch of gold at the base of the petals and a boss of golden stamens, which reflect their colour on the interior of the white, semi- double flowers. The buds are deep cream-coloured. Shower of Gold is deeper in the centre than Goldfinch, but the plant is not such a good grower.

[From the article "Multiflora Ramblers" by Edward K. Butler, Jamaica Plain, Mass.]
Goldfinch. (Paul & Son, 1908.) The small compact buds open deep yellow and fade in a single day to a pale lemon-white. A very free-growing, free-blooming variety, with good foliage and no thorns, an advantage that is appreciated by anyone who has to prune one of these large ramblers. The blossom has a distinct and charming fragrance that is as fleeting as its color, and in autumn the bright orange hips are very attractive. Until last year this was the nearest approach to a yellow rose in this class, but in 1916 Dr. A. H. Williams, a vice-president of the National Rose Society, exhibited a yellow Multiflora hybrid, raised by himself, named Emily Gray, which was awarded a Gold Medal and is described as a hardy, vigorous climber with large, dark mildew-proof foliage, and flowers of a rich orange-gold, which is retained till well expanded. It is not yet in commerce, but will be looked forward to with much interest.
