Hogg's Yellow (Hyb. Scotch) A seedling of 'Harison's Yellow'.

Rosa Lutea var. Hoggii British flower garden. ser. 2, IV. 2 pp., pl. 410. 1838.

Rosa lutea var Hoggii, Hogg's Double Yellow Briar. An upright, branching shrub, with brownish purple branches, armed with numerous straight, spreading, unequal prickles. Leaves pale green; petiole and rachis slender, filiform, sparingly hairy and glandular; leaflets elliptical, mucronulate, doubly and sharply serrated, membranous, glabrous and concave above, sparingly glandular beneath, about half-an-inch long. Flowers terminal, solitary, pedunculate, semi-double. Peduncles stout, filiform, about two inches long, sparingly clothed with glandular bristles. Calyx tube globular, depressed, glabrous, and glossy; segments ovate-lanceolate, acuminate, entire, downy on the upper surface, copiously glandular exteriorly, often furnished with a leafy apex, which is serrated...Petals obcordate, of a pale sulphur colour. This variety was brought from New York by Mr. James McNab, who received it from Mr. Thomas Hogg, Nurseryman, in that city, by whom the plant was raised from seeds of the single yellow rose, and it is known in the nurseries by the name of "Hogg's yellow American Rose." It is a pretty variety, but it is surpassed in the fulness of its flowers, and in richness of colouring by William's double yellow rose, figured at Tab 353 of the present volume.

We were particularly pleased with several very pretty yellow roses, seedlings of Mr. Hogg's; one of the number was peculiarly fragrant, and also a well formed flower, second only to Harrisonii. None of the kinds are yet named, but we hope Mr. Hogg will designate them in some way that they may be better known and introduced into collections.

Harrisonii, Hogg's Yellow, Yellow Sweet Brier.—This very beautiful yellow, and in fact the only yellow rose of this character that I have seen worth cultivating, was grown by a Mr. Harrison, near New York, about twenty years ago, and is evidently a seedling from the Yellow Austrian; its growth, after being well established, is quite luxuriant, often making shoots six feet long in one season. The wood is of a dark reddish brown colour, with strong straight thorns, the foliage small, of a dark rich green; the flowers open of a beautiful globular form, and appear like as many golden balls; when open they are about two inches in diameter, and nearly double, blooming very early in the season, and in great profusion; it seeds rather sparingly, but will no doubt produce many fine varieties. It delights in a good deep loamy soil, although it may grow in any soil or exposure; seeds saved from it should be sown and protected with the greatest care, and at no distant period we may anticipate, from this very plant, yellow roses possessing all the requisites of colour and form that the amateur can desire. The pruning must be done very sparingly; if the plant gets crowded, thin out the branches; the overgrown and straggling shoots can be shortened to any required length.
