A certain amount of French otto is also distilled from garden roses. 'Ulrich Brunner,' distilled with other garden blooms, give a fair quality oil or concrete, known as 'Roses de France.' Other varieties which frequently enter into the composition of 'Roses de France' concretes are 'Gruss an Teplitz,' 'Frau Karl Druschky,' Narbonnand, Van Houtte, Safrano, Paul Neyron, Madame Gabriel Luizet, Madame Caroline Testout, Baronne de Rothschild, Mrs. John Laing, Madame Maurice de Luze, François Juranville, Gerbe Rose and Gloire d'un Enfant d'Hiram.

Safrano (Beauregard, 1839): no rose-garden is a real rose-garden until Safrano is in it. It is a little old darling - close to a century old - whose lovely buds of saffron and apricot are just about the sweetest things imaginable. I have always wanted a small bed of Safranos edged with forget-me-nots, but in our unaccommodating climate the forget-me-nots stop blooming before Safrano begins, and that's a pity. Farther north, perhaps, or farther south they may be caught together. The plant is fairly hardy; I have several five years old; but even if it had to be replaced each spring, I should still have it. I am not sure just what there is about it I admire and like so much; perhaps it was my first really successful rose.

Roses in the South. [A paper by S. W. Crowell, of Roseacres, Miss, read at the third annual meeting of the Mississippi Nurserymen's Association, held at Agricultural College, Miss. continued from The Review for November 27. 1913.]
The class of roses dear to all rose growers in the south are the tea roses. With such varieties as Pink and White Cochet, Helen Good, Duchess de Brabant, Mme. Lambard, Safrano and William R. Smith, this type will ever be truly representative in our southern climate. This section of everblooming roses seems to embody every delicate tint and color of the rainbow, with vigorous growth and strong, healthy, leathery foliage that is resistant to mildew. They are persistent bloomers and practically all are highly perfumed, an attribute essential to a perfect rose.
