Filling out the 1872 quote from Gardener's Monthly: "We have Mr. Henderson's new Rose Bella in bloom, and think it does not at all compare with this."

The "this" is this case is Damaizin's Tea 'Mlle. Rachel'.

Thanks Sherri. I've just seen your old comment and have altered the date of 'Bella' from Before 1900 to Before 1877
