Cynthia Brooke, with buff on the yellow ground is a rose that is worth while.  It makes a really good standard and the flowers are better when thus grown than on the dwarf.

We are just getting two of MeGredy's, which you may already have - Cynthia Brooke and B. W. Price, two more of McGredy's beautiful flowers on woozy plants. The former has 4 inch open flowers of soft golden yellow, with a pinkish reverse. The petals have interesting wavy edges. Fragrance is again very mild.... it is about time the McGredy's paid more attention to their plants.
