Sunset (Tea) [Sport of Perle des Jardins]

Peter Henderson, 1881
Sunset, a "sport" from Perle des Jardins, has just been originated with us. It is identical in every way with that famous Rose, except that its color, instead of being a canary yellow, as in the Perle des Jardins, is a beautiful orange shade of saffron, often seen in the shading of our skies at sunset. For this reason I have given it the descriptive name of "Sunset." Whether for forcing in winter or for out-door in summer, "Sunset" will prove to be one of the most valuable Roses ever introduced.
