LIST of some New Roses, raised by Mr BROWN of New Scone

The finest of the Double Scots Roses (or those from Rosa spinosissima) having been fully described by Joseph Sabine, Esq. Secretary of the Horticultural Society of London, in the Transactions of that Society, vol. iv. it seems unnecessary to particularise them here. Mr Brown of Perth made trial of the seeds of other kinds of garden roses, about the year 1796, and procured several seedlings of great beauty, particularly the following.

Venus, a small double white, without prickles, perhaps the finest rose yet produced in Britain,
raised from seed of the garden White Rose, (Rosa alba.)
Duchess, double blush, raised from the Maiden Blush.
Diana, double blush, raised from the same.
Victoria, dark and double, superior to the Tuscany.
Parson, do. do. equal to the Tuscany.
Mount Etna, dark and double.
Mount Vesuvius, do. do.
Vagrant, do. do.

The above five raised from the double Velvet, R. Gallica.

Fair Maid, pale red, semi-double, in habit allied to the blush China rose, raised from the Portland or crimson monthly, R. centifolia.
Blush-tree Burnet-leaved, double, raised from the single Burnet-leaved, with shining or glossy leaves, and red berries.
Dwarf Burnet-leaved, double, raised from the same.
Chance, double blush, raised from double Damask, (R. damascena.)
Great Mogul, double, raised from the red Belgic, (R. damascena.)
Purple, double, raised from crimson Dutch and Dutch hundred-leaved, (R. Gallica.)
Miss Bold,
Favourite,
Flora,
Ruby.
} double, raised from the Princess, (R. Gallica.)

Most of the above are very different in flower and habit from those they were raised from, and from any other roses. Mr Brown possesses a new rose of considerable beauty, raised at New Scone, and which first flowered in summer 1821. He calls it the Coronation Rose.
