Dr. James A. Gamble. 'Ophelia', the Mother Rose. 'Joanna Hill', like its grandmother 'Ophelia', is both a good greenhouse and a fine garden rose. An inbred 'Ophelia', it was produced by the E. G. Hill Company in 1928. One of its parents, 'Mme. Butterfly,' was found growing on an 'Ophelia' bush and the other immediate parent, 'Miss Amelia Gude' (named by Fred Lemon for a daughter of the house of William Gude in Washington), was by 'Columbia', daughter of 'Ophelia' and by 'Sunburst', a Pernetiana rose. 'Joanna Hill', as is well known, is very stylish. She has a creamy yellow complexion and a refulgence of her own. The buds are large, long and pointed; the flowers open into a beautiful oval and last well; the blooming period is long and profuse; and the foliage is a lighter shade of green than that of either 'Ophelia' or 'Mme. Butterfly', which may be due to the Pernet infusion through 'Sunburst'. Joanna is a contraction of the names Joseph and Anna. For two reasons the Hills were overjoyed at the time this rose was named; first, by the discovery of this fine new rose; and second by the birth of a daughter to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph H. Hill, son of E. G. Hill. The fond family named their new yellow rose creation for their new little girl.
