Dr. A. S. Thomas.  Yellow Roses. 
Paul's Lemon Pillar is almost a climbing counterpart of Sir Henry Segrave, one of the most reliable of all show roses. This climber blooms only in the spring, unfortunately.  Sir Henry Segrave is a very healthy grower and blooms freely. One is too apt to think of it as a specimen bloom; almost every bunch of roses that I cut from my garden includes at least two or three of these light yellows.

Sir Henry Segrave for the yellow, a good exhibition rose and again [plant] in the open sunny position.

Sir Henry Segrave (Show & Garden)  This is a primrose yellow of soft and lovely purity in tone and has garden qualities in addition to its proven exhibition form.

Mr. F. Platt, Bexley, NSW. 
Sir Henry Segrave A very dependable variety. Seldom wins a championship because of a small size, but always useful in completing a 12 or a 6.

Sir Henry Segrave is attractive and grows well with me, but I am afraid we must part, for the flower is indubitably too thin.

Sir H. Segrave. Primrose yellow, exhibition form, good growth. Ever since I saw it in England as a cut bloom it has interested me.

A Rose that seems to have been missed in the rush is Portadown Glory. It is similar to Sir Henry Segrave and almost as good.

Sir Henry Segrave. This wonderful new Rose can hardly be said to be white—possibly ivory, tinted lemon would describe the colors—at any rate we class it as the best light colored Rose that has come to our notice in recent years. The buds and flowers are superb in form and substance and the bush is above the average in performance. The always perfect buds rate high in cutting value.
