  • ARCH DUKE CHARLES, of very luxuriant growth and a most prolific bloomer. The flowers are very different in color, varying from light pink to deep crimson, with all the intermediate shades, sometimes also, marbled and spotted.
  • ASSUBRUS, dark crimson.
  • BEAU CATHARIXA. brilliant crimson, blush tint,
  • BELLE EMILIE, deep purplish crimson.
  • CAMELLIAFLORA, light rosy purple in very large clusters; grows about 4 feet high.
  • CAMELLIA BLANC, white, creamy centre.
  • CARMINE SUPERB; flowers medium size, in great profusion, of a very dark crimson hue, and of globular form; foliage dark reddish; it forms a neat little hedge.
  • DUCHESSE OF KENT; flowers of medium size, beautifully formed and in great clusters; color light pink or nearly white, with a cream-colored centre. It is almost a never-ceasing bloomer, but during the drouths in summer the white flowers look as if sprinkled with blood. It grows very compact and bushy — almost dwarfish.
  • FABVIER, bright red.
  • GALATHEA, light crimson.
  • GRENADIER, pink.
  • HORTENSIA, shaded dark blush.
  • LA CAMOEN, rose changeable.
  • LAWRENCIANA, also called "Picayune," is remarkable for its very small flowers and foliage; it forms a neat edging around a bed.
  • LAWRENCIANA VIRIDIS, "the Green Rose," is a botanical curiosity. The flower, if it can be called so, consists of a green tuft of leaves, or, more correctly, in a double calyx, destitute of petals. It blooms, however, in this way, from early spring until Christmas, and is almost indispensable for boquets.
  • LOUIS PHILIPPE, dark crimson.
  • MADAM BREON, bright rosy crimson very large and brilliant flowers, which in the fall, assume a still more brilliant hue.
  • MARJOLIN, or Purple Superior, an immense bloomer of a brilliant dark scarlet color and velvety tint. This variety planted close to Duchesse of Kent, or planted promiscuously in a hedge will form a most beautiful object.
  • PRINCE EUGENE, vivid crimson.
  • RUBENS, dark rosy violet.
  • SANGUINEA, deep blood red.
  • TRIUMPHANT, rosy lilac, changing to violet crimson.
The Tea Roses (Rosa, indica odorata) so called on account of their fragrance, somewhat resembling the odor of fine tea.
The light colors as well as the yellow hues are predominant in this class; no dark colored Tea Roses being known yet.
  • ABRICOTE, fawn color, tinged with pink; a very pretty rose.
  • ADAM, light pink, very large and splendid flower, a good bloomer; middling growth; an improvement on Lyonaise.
  • ADELAIDE, pale yellow.
  • AMOENA, pale rose.
  • ANTHEROSE, white with creamy centre, very double, fine habit.
  • AURORA, fawn changing to pink.
  • BELLE ALLEMANDA, rosy cream color.
  • BELLE LAURA, pale buff.
  • BON SILENE, one of the deepest colored Tea roses; of a coppery hue and delightful fragrance; the flower often very-large,
  • BOUGERE, a singular rosy bronze color, fine shaped flower; good blower.
  • CAROLINE, beautiful rosy pink.
  • CLARA SYLVAIN, white with creamy centre; rather dwarfish growth.
  • DEVONIENSIS. Who would not know this beautiful rose, of a pale flesh color tinged with buff and exceedingly fragrant? It is of very luxuriant growth, with dark wood and strong thorns. On poor soil, however, this splendid rose grows but weak, turning, also, pure white and almost single.
  • DUCHESSE OF MECKLENBURG, creamy yellow.
  • ELIZA SAVAGE, pale sulphur.
  • FIANCE OF ABYDOS, pure white.
  • GLORY OF ALGIER, delicate rosy pink.
  • GOUBAULT, another highly fragrant rose, resembling somewhat Bon Silene, in color and habit; one of the earliest in the spring.
  • LA SYLPHIDE, very light pink, often nearly white, with a buff centre and fine form. It is a fine bloomer in autumn, the flowers at that season coming to their greatest perfection; strong grower.
  • LADY WARRENDER, a beautiful little rose, but of very dwarfish growth; the flower opens pale pink, soon turns white; the petals finely imbricated.
  • LYONNAISE, rosy blush.
  • MADAM DESPREZ, pure white, but rather small flowers, dwarfish growth.
  • MANSAIS, coppery buff.
  • MARECHAL BUGEAUD, a very large and fine rose of pale pink color, tinged with light buff; strong growth.
  • MARY STUART, light pink, creamy centre.
  • MIRABILE, rose tinged with sulphur.
  • NYPHETOS. a splendid pure white rose; buds remarkably long and pointed; growth somewhat straggling.
  • PAULINE PLANTIER, yellowish white, a very good bloomer, robust growth.
  • PRINCESSE MARIA, beautiful rosy pink, with a creamy tint, very double, so much so, even, that it does not always come to full perfection during the drouths of summer, but in the spring and still more so in the autumn, it is splendid.
  • POEONIFLORA, large pink.
  • SAFFRANO, very deep buff, a most remarkable color. It is magnificent while in bud; it does not, however, show itself to an advantage when fully open. But if a person will take the trouble of tying a little sewing cotton around the bud, it will be prevented from expanding, and keep for many days in its highest beauty; vigorous growth, the stem often measuring 2 inches in diameter.
  • STROMBIO, rose white.
  • TRIUMPH DE LUXEMBURG, also, often called "Luxemburg Tea," is a magnificent flower, with thick leathery petals of pale rosy color, tinged with pale buff.
  • VICTORIA MODESTA, light pink, creamy tint, very sweet.
  • WILLIAM WALLACE, pale blush.
  • VIRGINAL, or Julia Mansais, yellowish white, beautiful in spring and autumn, less so during the heat of the summer. Its growth is very compact, bushy and dwarfish.
  • VIRGINIE, clear pink, a beautiful shape and a great bloomer. It always forms a neat, close round bush; about 2 feet high.
