Bedding Roses now coming to the front Mr Paul tried to get varieties of vivid colouring and free continuous habit. Paul's Cheshunt Scarlet of 1889 was the first of these; it was succeeded by Bacchus in 1895...

Hybrides Remontants. Groupe I. — Madame Victor Verdier
Ce groupe se rapproche beaucoup de celui des "Charles Lefebvre"; on dit communément des rosiers qui le composent que ce sont des "Général Jacqueminot" à bois lisse: ils sont très florifères, franchement remontants. Rameaux lisses, verts, aiguillons petits et rares; feuillage vert, moyen; fleur en coupe, floraison le plus souvent en corymbe; on y rencontre les coloris les plus variés, du rose au rouge pourpre noirâtre.

Roses at Cheshunt.
Bacchus attracted our notice at the Palace show, where Mr. Paul had a bunch of it in a class for Roses in bunches of not less than seven trusses. It should make a very good garden Rose, being of vigorous growth, and, judging from the successional buds developing, a true perpetual bloomer. Its beauty is in the bud state, and if free it will make a gay bush or give abundance of flowers for cutting. The buds are long and pointed and of a rich velvet crimson. The colour becomes duller as the flower expands, but even with all the wealth of red Hybrid Perpetuals there is room for Bacchus, with its bold rich buds, that can be cut with long shoots.

Mr. G. Paul showed several new Roses, one named Bacchus looking very promising as a garden variety. It is a Hybrid Perpetual, bearing rich velvety crimson flowers of medium size on long stems.
