Lord Penzance Hybrid Sweet Briars.
Raised by Lord Penzance from Sweet Briars, hybridised and selected. The flowers are semi-double, and of various pretty shades, with the sweet-scented foliage of the Sweet Briar. They have of late years become very popular, alike for their beautiful flowers, handsome berries, and for their value for clumps, arches, hedges, and nearly all other purposes, as they can be employed with a certainty of their hardiness and success. Amongst the score or so varieties, the following are specially pretty and useful:
Jeannie Deans is a pretty rosy-crimson. All of the above are worthy of a place in every garden.

Lord Penzance's Sweet Briars.
These lovely hybrid Sweet Briars, apart from their extreme beauty, are intensely interesting, being crosses between the well-known Sweet Briar and various other roses, such as Austrian Briar, varieties of Galllca, etc. All of them possess the deliciously-scented foliage and strong, vigorous growth of the Sweet Briar, and are as hardy as Oak trees: the flowers are of the most beautiful tints, and are produced in great profusion, presenting the delightful odor and the numerous golden stamens of the Sweet Briar flower, and much larger. A unique race of Roses of great beauty.

Lord Penzance's Sweet Briars.
These wonderful single roses, raised by Lord Penzance, have already obtained a world-wide reputation, and are very popular. Like their parent (sweet briar) both foliage and flower are deliciously fragrant, they are all strong growers, free bloomers, and perfectly hardy. The flowers are single, but lasting. Extra strong plants, 4 to 6 feet high, 2/— each. These require no pruning, and make impenetrable hedges of great beauty.

Lord Penzance again showed his hybrid Sweet Briers, in which class of Roses his lordship has raised so many beautiful hybrids. On this occasion, the exhibit consisted of [illegible but possible "many bunches"] of several trusses in each and as many varieties, the parentage of each being given, although all had not received names. Two of these will be found among the list of certified plants. Others which were the most striking were Jeannie Deans, with small incurved flowers of a bright crimson, very pretty in the bud and Meg Mewrrilies, another crimson with larger flowers.
