Hybrid Perpetual Roses.
Anne de Diesbach
A Rose of brilliant carmine, giving satisfaction everywhere because of the stability of color and fragrance. It blooms over a long period and is one of the most serviceable of the garden Roses. The flowers are heavy, large and double, giving a fluffy effect when fully opened. The buds are long and pointed and balance gracefully upon the stem. The plant is of robust growth, the spreading stems having the pleasing effect of riotousness. It can be successfully grown in any part of the United States or lower Canada, and is becoming more popular every year- as it becomes better known.

Hardy Climbing Roses.
The Anna Marie Rose is a splendid specimen of the Prairie Rose group. The pale pink blossoms are beautiful, and their fragrance is soft and sweet. The flowers are borne in profusion once a year. The plant is iron clad in hardiness, grows vigorously, and makes itself at home over any lattice or wall. It is a valuable climber, its foliage being so attractive that it would be worthy of cultivation for that alone, but the flowers give the plant an added charm.

Hybrid Tea Roses.
Antoine Rivoire
Charmingly shaded a rosy flesh-color on yellow ground, with a delicate border of carmine, a unique blending that is delightfully cast. The fragrance is very sweet, and the flowers come freely. They are large, full and of splendid form. The bush grows quickly into a fine, large specimen that makes a place for itself in the garden that cannot be taken by any other variety, and the color of the blossoms makes it one of the most conspicuous plants in a large collection. The foliage resists insects, mildew or blight, and the whole plant is attractive. A splendid Rose with pleasing proportions, most strikingly toned in color and blended in hues.

China, or Monthly Roses.
Antoinette Cuillerat
The large, loosely double flowers of this variety come in the greatest profusion. They are white, with yellowish center, with the reverse of the outer petals carmine-tinted. The blossoms are fragrant. An especially lovable flower, by reason of its blended colors.

Bourbon Roses.
The blossoms of Appoline Rose are bright pink and crimson, the petals being marked on the outside and along the edges with silvery shades, charming from any angle. There is a decided fragrance at all times. The flowers are large and cupped, and hold their form until the petals drop. The plant is of vigorous growth and of good habit, and in most sections of the country is able to withstand cold winters without injury; however, in the Northern States a slight protection is desirable, and the plant will amply repay such care. Considered one of the best varieties of the Bourbon group, and it will illumine the garden with its bright blooms when other plants are relatively bare of flowers.

Hybrid Perpetual Roses.
Archduchess Elizabeth of Austria
A profuse-flowering Rose, with blossoms large and bold and fragrant. In color, a rosy carmine, somewhat unique and very pleasant to look upon. The plant is strong and wide-spreading, and is especially adapted for planting where space is not a consideration. A characteristic of this Rose is that the foliage is rarely attacked by insects or blight, and holds its rich hues of green against adversities that would conquer some varieties. Undoubtedly one of the most substantial Roses.

Hybrid Tea Roses.
Augustine Guinnoisseau [sic]
The characteristics of this Rose are such that it endears itself to the grower, and by many of them is known as the "White La France." The flowers are white, very slightly flesh-tinted and especially delicate. The fragrance has a pronounced odor of wine. The flowering habits are so free, and the blooms come in such profusion, that it would be profitable to grow wherever quantity of blooms is a consideration. The flowers are extra large and full, and come upon stiff, heavy canes.

Hardy Climbing Roses.
Baltimore Belle is one of the conspicuous members of the Prairie Rose family. The blossoms are delightfully colored and pleasantly fragrant. They are produced in big clusters and are very double, appearing freely once a year. The pale blush to rose-white hue of the blossoms is enchanting and, as the blooms droop gracefully from the rambling vines, the effect is pleasing. The plant grows vigorously and is very hardy. Especially recommended for planting about dead walls or outhouses, where it is desired to cover unsightly scenes or rough work. One can hardly afford to pass this variety when planning a Rose arbor- it is considered one of the finest of Climbing Roses.

Hybrid Perpetual Roses.
There are few Roses of solid color, without the least shading. Most of them are lighter toward the tip than at the base, or some petals will be darker than the others. The Barbarossa is pure carmine, the lights and shadows giving the appearance of loose-hung drapery exposed to the brightest illumination. The fragrance is delightful. The flowers are large and full and the plant is prodigal with blossoms, blooming two or three times every season, often after other Roses have ceased their labors for the summer. One of the most vigorous of the Hybrid Perpetuals, withstanding the winters as far north as Quebec. It is most satisfactory for the garden, either when massed or blended with Roses of milder colors.

Hybrid Perpetual Roses.
Baron de Bonstetten
As glorious a production as can be imagined, a dark velvety crimson flower with a delightful odor. The Baron de Bonstetten Rose somewhat resembles the Prince Camille de Rohan, but is a little lighter and fuller. It flowers freely, with large, full blosooms, profuse in June. The growth is vigorous and compact and the plant is hardy. From its first introduction this variety has attracted the attention of Rose-lovers, and time does not seem to have impaired its popularity with expert Rosarians or amateur gardeners. It is one of the substantial results of expert hybridizing and the plants and beautiful flowers have become permanent features of all well-regulated Rose-gardens.
