Bridesmaid.  Tea.  A variety that is very useful in our southern Rose-gardens, because of its free-blooming qualities.  It is a descendant of the old Catherine Mermet but is better in a good many ways.  The flowers are large, fragrant, and of the clearest and deepest pink imaginable.  The plants are unusually strong growers.

Tea Roses.
The Bridesmaid Rose is of a clear, rich pink, strikingly beautiful at first glance, and wearing well upon long acquaintance. Its fragrance is decidedly like tea, and very agreeable. The flowers are large and full, and the buds are especially beautiful. The plant grows vigorously and is hardy. Flowers freely, and is especially desirable for cutting, as the stems are long and strong. The Bridesmaid Rose has been in existence for a number of years, and becomes more popular every season. Found in practically all collections of any magnitude, and, by many, grown to the exclusion of other kinds.
