CHINA ROSES

Most of which are monthly, or ever-blooming.

These are cultivated in pots, and can therefore be sent at any season of the year they are desired.

The monthly varieties, when planted in the open ground, are particularly interesting, on account of expanding their flowers in March and April, when those of other kinds have not yet made their appearance. They continue to bloom throughout the summer; and in the autumnal months their numerous flowers also afford particular gratifications as nature then seems most to need their cheering influence Nearly the whole number support our winters with little or no protection, as designated by this mark † ; those most tender need only to have a box or barrel placed over them during winter. Where any kinds are designated as climbers, it is meant that they grow tall, and are suitable for training, &c.
