Hybrid Perpetual Roses
Oskar Cordel. (P. Lambert, 1898.) Very large buds and double, cup-shaped flowers of bright carmine, deliciously fragrant. A compact plant and practically a continuous bloomer.
A cross of Merveille de Lyon X André Schwartz, an old-fashioned Tea Rose, so that, like Frau Karl Druschki, it has Hybrid Tea ancestry. A fine Rose, little known here. Dropped from our list several years ago because of scarcity of stock.
