Gardeners' Chronicle, p. 174 (Oct. 1, 1921)
Major C. C. Hurst, D.L.
Read at the British Association on Sept, 12, 1921.

I note that Dr. Galloway, of the U.S.A. Department of Agriculture (1920), refers R. laxa, Hort., to R. coriifolia var. Froebeli, but as Dr. Heslop Harrison points out, after a comparison of my material with his northern forms of R. coriifolia, Fries, the characteristic broad, flat, woolly head of stigmas, that distinguishes R. coriifolia, Fries, is absent in R. laxa, Hort.

Looking for plant or seed of Rosa canina, any form. Can anyone help me?

I don't know if you are still looking but I have a rose that I am 99% sure is the rose you are looking for. I can send you cuttings.

Oh yes I am! Cuttings would be most welcome if weather permits. I'm near San Antonio, and it's going to be pretty hot here for at least the next week or so, according to the 10-day forecast. I'll be happy to pay postage (and whatever!) if you can send them a quick way, probably with a cold pack in the box? They seem to be easy from seed, too, so last year's seed would be good also, if there is still any on the plants. My old plants in CO always held their fruit well into the next summer.

This is a very hard rose to find, I guess because it's not a reallly gorgeous one. I want it for my little dog graveyard on our place -- thought it was appropriate.
