American Rose Annual (1917)
"Recently Dr. Van Fleet has put into commerce three roses included in the Lovett family, of which Alida Lovett is the one illustrated. A hybrid between Rosa Wichuraiana and a Hybrid Perpetual rose as pollen parent, it is of vigorous climbing habit and proved hardiness, having been under observation since 1909. The habit of growth and form of flower resemble Dr. W. Van Fleet, but the color is better, being described as "a lively bright shell-pink, with shadings of rich sulphur at base of petals."
