Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1846 edition. Excerpt: ...finely-shaped flowers, were desiderata, but are so no longer. Pueelle Genoise is a fine large and double rose, apparently a hybrid of the China Rose, as its foliage approaches it in resemblance. Among the novelties in Bourbon roses, one of the most remarkable is Madame Lacharme, a rose raised at Lyons, and named after the wife of a rose cultivator there; this may with justice be called White Madame Desprez; it produces its beautiful white flowers, the outer petals of which are slightly tinged with blush, in large clusters; it is of robust habit, and will undoubtedly be a most popular variety. In fine contrast to the above are two new dark crimson Bourbons, Proserpine and PauIJosepki which both produce their flowers on erect foot-stalks; foliage large, thick, and y of a deep glossy green, flowers of the most brilliant crimson, slightly shaded with purple; the latter is possibly the darker of the two; but it is really difficult to say which merits the preference. Cornice de Seine et Marne is also a fine variety, with flowers of the most brilliant crimson, not quite so deep in color as the before-mentioned, and not tinted with purple; this is a most splendid rose. Enfant d'Ajaceio and Souvenir d'Ansehne are two new roses of precisely the habit of Gloire de Rasarnene, with flowers of the same color, but quite double; these are both beautiful and very fragrant roses. A race of delicately pale flesh-colored roses has sprung from Madame Nerard. Of these the most beautiful are Manteau de Jeanne d'Arc, almost white; and Heine du Congris and Comtesse de Resseguier, of the most delicate blush; these are all elegant and beautiful roses. A profusion of other beauties have recently been presented to our notice, all of which will be found in the catalogue...show more
