CHINA ROSES,
Most of which are monthly, or ever blooming.

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 flower throughout the summer; but in the autumnal months their numerous flowers also afford particular gratification, as nature than seems most to need their cheering influence.

Those kinds marked thus † will bear our winters without protection—the others should be covered with straw or a box during winter in this latitude.
