Greenhouse Roses 

be a success under glass a variety must be one that will produce 
flowers with strong stems, of pleasing color both under natural and 
artificial light, and one that is sufficiently productive to make it 
worth the valuable space which it occupies. 

It is to be regretted that these varieties for greenhouse use are 
limited in number, but the absolute necessity of fulfilling the above 
conditions will always keep the list of greenhouse Roses down to a 
few of the very best. Many of our finest garden varieties would 
be valuable acquisitions owing to the coloring, were it not essential 
to place productiveness as the prime requisite. 

We are offering you in this list the true and tried varieties and, 
in addition, the newer Roses which appear to be worthy of green- 
house space. 

With few exceptions, these varieties are better when grafted 
on manetti than on their own roots. In ordering be sure to specify 
which you wish, as different soils and localities change conditions, 
and there is no universal rule to apply to Rose growing. 

Novelties of 1915 

Hoosier Beauty. ( Dorner .) Introducer’s description: In 

color a rich, velvety crimson with deeper shadings. It is 
as fragrant as Richmond, has more petals and better keep- 
ing qualities. In production of bloom it ranks with any 
forcing variety. It naturally throws two- and three-foot 
stems; never has a dormant period, starting new growth 
very quickly at any time of the year. Without exception, 
it is the strongest grower of forcing Roses, making plants 
well clothed with foliage, perfectly healthy and never show- 
ing a trace of mildew or black-spot. 


234-inch: 60c. each, $6.00 per doz., $40.00 per 100. 

3- inch: 75c. each, $7.50 per doz., .$50.00 per 100. 

4- inch: $1.00 each, $9.00 per doz., $60.00 per 100. 

George Elgar. A dainty yellow Polyantha Rose. Very 
similar to Cecile Brunner in habit of growth and formation 
of bud clusters. Valuable for corsage and table work.

Hoosier Beauty 



Newer Varieties for Greenhouse Use 

Killarney Brilliant 

Killarney Brilliant. A sport from Killarney; the best 
of all varieties of this type. Has the same habit of 
growth and the same freedom of bloom as its parent, 
while the flower is twice as , large, having 25 to 40 
full-sized petals. It will be as useful for Summer 
blooming as for Winter forcing. The color is a very 
brilliant pink and varies like Killarney. In bright 
weather it is almost crimson and in dull weathfir, 
when Killarney is so pale, it is as bright as Killar- 
ney at its best. GRAFTED

Francis Scott Key. An American seedling, raised by 

John Cook. It is a heavy double Rose of great sub- 
stance. In color, red. It shows good growing char- 
acteristics and is undoubtedly a valuable variety. 
Throughout the Summer this Rose was unequaled 
as a cut Rose and it is proving now in Midwinter 30 
be an excellent grower, opening perfectly and worthy 
of unqualified recommendation.

Hadley. Red Roses must not be confused 
with a variety that is in color a deep, vel- 
vety crimson. Hadley retains its brilliancy 
at all seasons of the year. The variety is 
double and buds are well formed. The fra- 
grance is excelled only by America Beauty. 
It is a strong, rapid grower and the flowers 
are borne on long stiff stems. It has proven 
itself under thorough trial to be an all-the- 
year-round forcing variety. For the private 
estate we believe Hadley to be the best of 
the red or crimson roses. For the com- 
mercial place Hadley will prove a profitable 
Rose to grow. For its fragrance alone- the 
variety would be popular, but it is also an 
average producer, and the flowers are of 
fine quality.

Ophelia. Among the new Roses grown for greenhouse flowering, 
Ophelia has merited the praise which the variety has received and is 
a welcome addition to the list. It is not a large Rose, but has 
beautiful form and a color that is very pleasing. It may be described 
as salmon flesh, shaded with rose. The growth is satisfactory in 
every respect and the variety is very prolific.

American Beauty. This popular Rose is almost too widely 
known to need a description. The name^would imply that 
the variety is of American origin, but the fact remains that 
to France belongs the credit of having produced American 
Beauty. It properly belongs to the Hybrid Perpetual or 
Remontant class and yet differs from others of this class 
in that as a garden Rose it is an almost universal failure. 
As a greenhouse Rose, American Beauty has a host of 
friends. The flowers are large and full petaled. The deep 
pink color is wonderfully effective, but for its fragrance 
alone American Beauty would be a favorite. It likes a 
deep soil with abundance of room for root action and 
abundant ventilation. As the variety is considered better 
on its own roots we do not list it grafted. For certain soils 
infected with eel worm, grafted plants are better. It does 
equally well, in our opinion, on manetti, and we will graft 
Beauty to order, if so desired.

Francis Scott Key — See page 4 

Sunburst. In color, orange copper or golden yel- 
low. Very intense shades and brilliant in coloring. 
It is a strong-growing variety and belongs to the 
class of big Roses. The foliage and stem are ex- 
cellent. Owing to the fact that Sunburst has 
not been a general success grafted, we are offer- 
ing the variety on its own roots only.

American Beautv 




Mrs. Chas. Russell. A strong-growing Rose. The foli- 
age is heavy and leathery, inclined to curl slightly on the 
older wood; is almost mildew proof. The bud is fully as 
large as American Beauty but longer and pointed, and 
opens into a flower of unusual beauty. The color is a 
bright rose pink, deeper toward the center. Is a remarkable 
keeper and shipper. We do not offer own root plants of this

Cecile Brunner. This dainty little Polyantha Rose has 
been long in securing the recognition which it deserves. 
The flowers are a bright rose color and are produced in 
great profusion. It has much value for corsage bouquet 
work and is being sold under the names “Mignon” and 
“Sweetheart.” Although a Polyantha, it is not as hardy 
as the class of Roses to which it belongs and undoubtedly 
for this reason has remained for so many years in obscurity.

wonderfully productive. It is the finest Summer rose of its

Cecile Brunner 

Prince E. C. d’Arenberg 

Prince E. C. d’Arenberg. The color is a very clear red, no 
trace of blue in it, and it is very distinct from the crimson 
Roses of which Hadley and Milady are examples. The 
growth is good and the bud nicely formed, resembling 
American Beauty. Among the new Roses which have come 
into prominence this past season this Rose, from present 
indications, will be one of the most popular. We planted 
7,000 in the belief that as a producer it would exceed Rich- 
mond and that the quality of the bloom would be the 
equal, at least, of this old-time favorite. Results with this 
Rose have been gratifying. It has shown strong growth 
and productiveness. There is apt to be dissatisfaction 
with new Roses, owing to the fact that the individual 
requirements of these varieties are not immediately recog- 
nized. Prince d’Arenberg has shown that it needs careful 
cutting. If cut in too tight a bud it fails to show its true 
characteristics. It should be cut as it begins to unfold 
its center petals. After reaching this stage it opens 
quickly if left on the plant. This means frequent cutting, 
but the better quality of bloom will repay the extra effort.

Greenhouse Varieties 

The accompanying illustrations 
show the difference in strength and 
character between plants grafted on 
manetti and plants on their own 
roots, these photographs being taken 
of plants in 234 'inch pots. 

For private work we advise the use

Bon Silene. One of the 
small Roses. Cherry red 
in color and very fragrant. 
A profuse bloomer and an 
old-time favorite. Grafted 

Bride. Pure white in color, 
but for general growing 
White Killarney is to be 
preferred. Grafted only. 

Bridesmaid. Clear pink 
and an old favorite, but 
generally replaced by new- 
er varieties. Grafted only. 

Cardinal. Light red or deep 
cerise in color. Very beau- 
tiful in all stages of de- 
velopment but requiring a 
high temperature for suc- 
cessful culture. Grafted 

Double White Killarney. 

The Budlong strain of 
White Killarney has more 
petals than the Waban 
White Killarney and these 
petals have more substance 
and are purer white in col- 
or. It needs more heat 
than the Waban strain, 
and is a better Rose when 
properly grown. 

Golden Gate. Light pink 
in color. Very strong in 
growth and exceedingly 
productive. Grafted only. 


Irish Fire Flame. A single 
Rose with only five petals. 
It flowers profusely during 
the Winter months. The 
bud is an intense, fiery 
crimson at the top, shad- 
ing at the base of the petals 
to a rich orange salmon. 
The open flower is bright 
salmon. Own root only. 

Ivory. The cream-white 
sport of Golden Gate. 
Grafted only. 

Jonkheer J. L. Mock. Deep 
cerise pink in color, pro- 
ducing large flowers. As! a 
Summer Rose it is good ; as 
a Winter Rose it requires 
extra heat. 

Kaiserin Augusta Victoria. 

An old favorite where good 
white Roses are wanted in 
Summer. It is not a Win- 
ter Rose and should be 
gotten into the bench 
early to get the benefit of 
the entire growing season. 
Grafted plants are to be 

Killarney. This beautiful 
Rose varies in color with 
weather conditions but is 
attractive at all times. 
Clear, brilliant pink when 
at its best. A big pro- 
ducer. By sports Kil- 
larney has developed into 
a race of Roses instead of 
a variety. 




Killarney Queen. This variety can be grown to wonderful 
perfection. As a general rule it is most beautifully colored, 
being a deep pink of wonderful brilliancy. The foliage is 
large and handsome. It is not so heavy a producer as the 
other Killarneys and should be planted double, that is, 
two plants together, to get results from a certain space. 

Lady Alice Stanley. Deep, clear rose color; inside of the 
bloom pale flesh. A very attractive Rose. The blooms 
are large, of great substance, and are produced freely. 

Lady Hillingdon. Deep coppery yellow in color and very 
free flowering. The open bloom is its most attractive 

Milady. The habit of growth is strong and sturdy and foli- 
age excellent. The flower is large and double and opens 
perfectly at all seasons of the year. In color it is similar 
to Richmond, although richer in color in the bud. In form 
of flower and fragrance it resembles Gen. Jacqueminot and 
combines with this, excellent color, strong growth, great 
productiveness, and wonderful keeping qualities, which 
strongly recommend the variety as an excellent forcing Rose. 

Mrs. Aaron Ward. This variety is, in our opinion, the best 
Rose ever disseminated by Pernet-Ducher. Every year 
since its introduction it has increased in popularity. Its 
Indian-yellow bud, changing with the expanding of the 
flower, is a great favorite. This deep yellow bud is at- 
tractive, but no more so than the open Rose, which in many 
cases is a shell pink. As a garden Rose and greenhouse 
Rose, Mrs. Aaron Ward is our best yellow. 

Mrs. George Shawyer. A brilliant pink in color with long, 
pointed buds that are fairly full and which open perfectly 
at all seasons. The growth is tall and the stems carry the 
flowers perfectly. The foliage is good but inclined to be 
soft when grown with an over-abundance of heat. It is a 
Rose that is one of the finest when properly handled. 

Mrs. Pierpont Morgan. This is one of the old-time favor- 
ites. Very productive and a strong grower. Shell pink in 
color. Grafted only. 

Mrs. Taft. The variety called Mrs. Taft is properly Antoine 
Rivoire. It is shell pink in color. The flowers are nicely 
formed and the growth during the warmer weather is very 
satisfactory. It requires extra heat in the Winter. 

Double White Killarney— See page 7 

Radiance. Deep cerise pink in color and very productive. 
A good Rose for general growing and in addition is one of 
the finest outdoor varieties ever grown. 

Richmond. Up to the advent of Milady and Hadley, this 
was the most widely grown crimson Rose. The buds are 
finely shaped and the growth is excellent. 

White Killarney. The Waban strain of White Killarney 
for general purposes is the finest white variety. The growth 
is stronger than that of Killarney, from which it is a sport. 
The buds in Summer are apt to come pinkish but this fault 
is made up for by the quality of the flowers during the 
balance of the year. 

The foregoing list includes practically every variety of any 
prominence that is being grown for greenhouse use. In

Hybrid Teas of Recent Introduction 

British Queen. This variety was awarded a Gold Medal 
by the National Rose Society of England, and is sent out 
as one of the finest white Roses yet introduced. In the bud 
form it is slightly tinged with pink. Very free and fragrant. 
We have not tested this Rose thoroughly and, therefore, 
can not recommend it, but offer it to meet a rather wide- 
spread demand. 

75c. each, .$7.50 per doz. 

Colleen. Another European introduction, described as an 
improved Ivillarney. Color rose pink, heavily shaded 
rosy crimson. Large, full, well-formed flowers. We have 
not as yet tested this variety and cannot fully recommend 
it, but believe it is a promising garden addition. 

$2.00 each. 

Edgar M. Burnett. Light flesh pink on the inside petals; 
reverse deep, rosy pink. Not yet tested, but recommended 
to us as an improved flower of the Lady Alice Stanley type. 

$2.00 each. 

Hadley. This magnificent Rose, introduced by us in 1914, 
has proved, after another season’s trial, to be one of the 
best garden varieties of its color, a rich crimson, varying to 
deep, velvety crimson. Descending directly from such 
famous parents as Liberty, Richmond and General Mac- 
Arthur, it inherits many excellent qualities, free, vigorous, 
branching growth, terminating in well-formed, intensely 
fragrant flowers, produced continuously during the season. 

Strong, 2-year-old plants: $1.00 each, $10.00 per doz. 

Irish Fire Flame. A new, remarkably free-flowering and 
showy variety when used for massing in the garden. We 
believe it to be the best of the single-flowering type. The 
bud is an intense, fiery crimson, shading at the base of the 
petals to a rich orange salmon. The open flower is bright 
salmon. It is of strong, vigorous growth, with dark green 
foliage, reverse of leaf deep bronze. 

75c. each, $7.50 per doz. 

Iona Herdman. An entirely new “ Gold Medal ” Rose of 
promise. We must quote the raisers’ (S. McGredy & Sons) 
description: “A pure, clear, orange flame, the greatest 

lift in color yet attained in Roses, surpassing Rayon d’Or 
in clearness and brightness, with the true Hybrid Tea growth 
and character. Without question, the most beautiful 
yellow, decorative Rose in existence, and a Rose that must 
be seen in order to grasp its wonderful coloring. Sweetly 
scented, very tree flowering, and of beautiful shape and 

$2.00 each. 

Lady Cromwell. A fine, cream-colored sport of My Mary- 
land, originating with us, and which, after testing thorough- 
ly, proves a bedding Rose of many excellent qualities. The 
flower is large and full, of My Maryland form, but distinct 
in color, and more prolific; growth vigorous, branching 
erectly, every growth producing a flower. A grand garden 

Strong plants, 5-inch pots: 75c. each, $7.50 per doz. 

Lady Mary Ward. Rich orange, shaded deep apricot 
orange, with a pronounced metallic veneering. A very bril- 
liant and attractive coloring. This is a distinct, free-flower- 
ing, sweetly-scented Rose that promises to become immensely 

Strong, 2-year-old plants: $1.50 each. 

Madame Chas. Lutaud 

Madame Chas. Lutaud. Chrome-yellow center, slightly 
tinted rosy scarlet on the outer petals. Long, pointed 
flowers, carried on stiff, erect stems; very large, full and 
globular. An improved Marquise de Sinety, from which 
it is easily distinguished by its deeper coloring and more 
vigorous growth. A fine exhibition Rose. 

Strong, 2-year-old plants: 75c. each, $7.50 per doz. 

Madame Edmond Rostand. A free-growing Rose that 
has given excellent results during an extensive trial and 
promises to be a valuable bedding Rose. Color pale flesh, 
shaded with salmon and reddish yellow in the center. 
Large, very full, globular flowers; an improvement on 
Prince de Bulgarie. 

Strong, 2-year-old plants: $1.00 each. 

Mme. Edouard Herriot. The Daily Mail Rose. A free- 
branching, new variety, producing its flowers in great 
profusion. In the bud form the color is a beautiful coral 
red, shaded with yellow, opening to a deep, terra cotta or 
reddish copper. A very beautiful and unique flower. 
We will be pleased to quote special prices in quantity. 

Strong, 2-year-old plants: $1.00 each. 

Mrs. Andrew Carnegie. Described by the introducers in 
Europe as a very large, beautiful flower. White, occasion- 
ally tinged lemon yellow. 

Strong, 2-year-old p'ants: $1.00 each 





Old Gold 

Robin Hood. Soft, bright, rosy scarlet, changing to bright 
scarlet crimson as the season advances. Vigorous, robust 
growth, entirely free from mildew. The flowers are large, beau- 
tifully formed, and produced freely throughout the season. 

75c. each. 

Willowmere. A truly magnificent, vigorous-growing Rose 
of erect, branching habit. In color a rich, shrimp pink, 
toning to carmine pink toward the edges o( the petals. The 
beautiful coral-red buds are carried on stout flower stalks, ■ 
and open into very large, full flowers. A decided improve- 
ment on the popular “ Lyon ” Rose, which it much 

Strong, 2- year plants: $1.00 each. 

Mme. Edouard Herriot — See page 9 

Mrs. Charles E. Pearson. A European Rose sent out as a 
variety of good bedding habit. The color is a delightful 
combination of orange, red, apricot and fawn. Very free 
and fragrant.

Mrs. Charles Russell. Rosy carmine with rosy-scarlet 
center; a very large, full flower of magnificent form.

hibition or garden Rose.

apricot red; long, pointed flower, with petals cf excellent 
texture. Very free and continuous in flowering; quite 
fragrant. A fine garden and decorative Rose. 

Strong, 2-year-old plants: $1.00 each. 

Natalie Bottner. Although not entirely new, the 
good qualities oi this variety do not appear to be, 
as yet, sufficiently appreciated. We find it an un- 
usually good bedding variety. The flowers, soft, 
pearly white, are of large size, excellent form, and 
remain in good condition much longer than the 
average garden Rose. Very free and persistent in 
flowering. An excellent Rose for garden decoration 
or for cutting purposes. 

75c. each, $7.50 per doz. 

Nerissa. Creamy yellow, shaded white, center oi 
flower tinted peach; extia large, full, and of good form. 
Although this variety has an excellent reputation, it 
has been somewhat of a disappointment in our trial 
gardens, but may prove better when thoroughly 
established . 

75c. each, $7.50 per doz. 

Old Gold. A free and dainty garden Rose, producing 
graceful, semi-double flowers profusely throughout 
the season. Color reddish orange, with coppery red 
and apricot shadings, particularly beautiful in the 
bud stage. Healthy, dark green foliage, entirely 
free from mildew and very fragrant. To those who 
appreciate the beauty of the single or semi-double 
flower, we confidently recommend this exquisite 
variety. We are fortunate in having a large stock of strong, 
2-year, 5-inch pot plants, and will be pleased to quote 
special prices in quantity.

The “Cromwell Gardens Best Twelve” 

Frequently we are requested to name a limited number of the best varieties for garden purposes. To assist patrons in a 
more general way, we have selected twelve of what we believe to be the best all-around varieties for the garden. In making 
this selection, we have carefully considered the three qualities that are most essential to a desirable bedding Rose. 

1. Freedom in flowering, by which we mean varieties that will flower profusely, not only in June, but until the season closes. 

2. Constitution. Hardy enough to over- Winter with slight protection and sufficiently vigorous to resist fungous pests. 

3. Color. Although this important feature is largely a matter of taste, the selection includes only the colors that are 
generally popular. 

It should be understood that under adverse conditions almost any Rose is subject to mildew. Under ordinary cul- 
ture, the varieties selected are mildew-resisting kinds, extremely free in flowering, and altogether the most desirable in their 
particular shade or color; varieties that have proved of such merit for garden culture that we are pleased to associate with 
them the name “ Cromwell Gardens,” as an evidence of final approval. 

These Roses are all two-year-old plants and are offered from large pots for May and later delivery: 50c. each, $5.00 

per dozen. The collection of twelve varieties for $5.00. 

Radiance. An American-bred Rose of so many excellent qualities 
that it may be considered the best bedding Rose in this color. The 
flowers are large, perfect in form, and are produced with exceeding 
freedom, the strong, vigorous, branchy growths invariably terminating 
in one or more flowers of a bright, carmine salmon shade, mingled 
wdth rose, shading to a coppery yellow" at the base of the petals. The 
American Rose Society officially recognized its merit by awarding it a 
Silver Medal, 1914, as the most valuable addition to the Rose for 
garden culture in this climate; the highest distinction yet awarded 
a bedding Rose in America. 

Madame Leon Paine. An entirely distinct and beautiful Rose. 
Silvery salmon, center shading from yellow to orange, elongated 
bud opening into a large, full flower. Fragrant, very floriferous, 
and of easy culture. A fine garden or bedding variety. 

Miss Cynthia Forde. Deep, brilliant, rose pink, shading to an attract- 
ive, light, rosy pink. An unusually w^ell-built, large Rose, of good 
habit, flowering profusely at all times. Delightfully fragrant. 

Laurent Carle. Brilliant, velvety carmine; long bud, opening into 
a large, well-formed, fragrant flower; vigorous and very free flowering. 
Roses of this color that are good bedders are all too scarce, but we 
have no hesitation in recommending this sterling variety as one of 
the best for garden purposes. 

Madame Leon Paine 


Mrs. Aaron Ward. Deep Indian yellow at the center of 
the flower, shading to primrose yellow toward the edges 
of the petals, the whole occasionally washed soft salmon 
pink as the flow r er expands. Hardy and very floriferous. 
In our estimation this is one of the best Roses in this color. 

Killarney Queen. The “ Killarney ” Rose is perhaps the 
most w'idely known and popular garden Rose. Killarney 
Queen, an improved variety, is in every way superior as a 
bedding variety. The growth is stronger and more robust 
in appearance, the foliage being larger and of a deep, healthy 
hue. Color, sparkling, cerise pink, shading to a lighter 
pink at the base of the petals; long, pointed bud which 
opens into an exceedingly large, well-formed flow r er, if any- 
thing, more handsome when full blown than in the bud form. 

Kaiserin Augusta Victoria. Soft, pearly white, shading to 
creamy yellow. Very double and sweetly fragrant. The 
formation of the flower is exquisite; growdh erect and 
strong. A distinct and beautiful Rose, possessing many 
sterling qualities. Highly recommended, but one that 
requires more careful protection during the Winter, being a 
trifle less hardy than the others of this set. With ample 
protection it invariably Winters well.

General MacArthur 

Mrs. Wakefield Christie Miller. Soft, pearly blush, shaded 
salmon; the outside of the petals clear vermilion-rose color. 
A remarkable color combination. Flowers resemble the 
Hybrid Perpetual form. 

Jonkheer J. L. Mock. Carmine, changing to imperial pink, 
with a silvery rose-white reflex. The flowers are produced 
with the greatest freedom on strong, erect stems, and the 
general growth is erect and vigorous. Very fragrant. 
This Rose has been awarded two gold and one silver medals. 

My Maryland. One of the finest American Roses. Very 
free blooming, every shoot bearing one or more flowers. It 
is very double, perfect in form, and bright, clear pink in 
color. Delightfully fragrant. 

Caroline Testout. Satiny rose, with bright center; large, 
full, globular flower; very free and fragrant. This Rose is 
grown more extensively than any other one variety, and we 
are of the opinion that it is yet one of the finest garden 
Roses in cultivation. 

General MacArthur. Large, deep, velvety, scarlet flowers 
usually borne singly on long, rigid stems, but of a good 
branching habit. Remarkably free in flowering, even under 
the most unfavorable weather conditions. One of the very 
best Roses of its color. 

For prices on “The Cromwell Gardens Best 
Twelve" refer to page 1 1

Hybrid Teas— General List 

Price of the following varieties: Strong, 2-year plants from 5- or 6-inch pots: 50c. each, $5.00 per doz., 

$40.00 per 100, except where otherwise noted. 

3 of a variety at the dozen rate; 25 of a variety at the 100 rate. 

Antoine Rivoire. An ideal Rose of large size and exquisite 
form; the color is a soft, rosy flesh on a yellow ground, shaded 
with a border of carmine. This Rose is better known under 
the name of Mrs. Taft. It is extensively grown for cut 
flowers, which are sold under this name. As a garden Rose 
it is a variety of exceptional merit in our climate, being 
hardy, immune from disease, and one that will flower 
continually. The flowers are carried on erect, vigorous 
stems, and are, therefore, particularly desirable for cut 

Bertha Gaulis. China Rose, with deeper center; flowers 
very large, full, and of perfect form. A superb Rose. 

Bessie Brown. Creamy-white flowers of immense size; 
good substance; very fragrant. A strong, vigorous grower; 
particularly good in Autumn. 

Betty. Coppery yellow, overspread with golden rose; long, 
pointed bud and large, fairly fidl flower. When established 
this is a strong-growing and unusually prolific variety. 

Cardinal. Rich, cardinal red; large, full, and very free. A 
garden Rose of excellent habit. 

Dean Hole. Silvery carmine, shaded salmon; large, full 
flowers of fine form. A garden Rose of great merit. 

Defiance. A new American garden Rose, the result of 
crossing Etoile de France with Grass an Teplitz. Deep, 
velvety crimson, shaded maroon, resembling the Hybrid 
Perpetual Abel Carriere. We find it one of the most free- 
flowering varieties yet sent out, and unusually fragrant. 
Its habit of growth is somewhat spready and branching, 
to the detriment of the variety. With a better-growing 
habit, this would be a wonderful garden Rose. On account 
of its freedom, deep coloring, and exquisite fragrance, it is 
worth a place in the garden. 


Mme: P Euler — See page 14 

Dorothy Page Roberts. Coppery pink, suffused apricot 
yellow. A unique, large-petaled Rose of indescribable 
shadings; a garden variety of great merit. 

Duchess of Wellington. A grand, free-flowering, garden 
Rose of an intense saffron-yellow color, stained with rich 
crimson, becoming deep coppery yellow as the bloom 
expands. Fairly full, with petals of great substance and 
delightfully fragrant. One of the finest decorative varieties. 

Earl of Warwick. Rich, soft, salmony pink, shaded in the 
center with vermilion. A showy and magnificent variety, 
doing well under adverse climatic conditions. 

Ecarlate. A vigorous, free-branching Rose, flowering pro- 
fusely throughout the season. The flower is not full, but 
is of an intensely brilliant scarlet, which, combined with its 
freedom, places the variety among the best of the purely 
decorative garden varieties. Inasmuch as it is very hardy 
and more free and showy than the popular Grass an Tep- 
litz, we consider it a Rose of great merit for garden decora- 

Edward Mawley. A splendid bedding Rose; color beautiful, 
rich crimson, shaded velvety maroon. The flowers are of 
good substance and produced freely. Strong, vigorous 
growth. Strong, 2-year plants: 75c. each, $7.50 per doz. 

Etoile de France (Star of France). Deep, velvety crimson; 
large petals of unusual substance; fragrant and of good 

George C. Waud. Large, full, perfectly-formed, tea-scented 
flowers, opening well. The color, glowing orange vermilion, 
is distinct and unique among Roses.. Free and continuous. 
A fine garden and bedding Rose. 

Gruss an Teplitz. Bright scarlet crimson with vivid, fiery 
red center; quite hardy and extremely free flowering. 
This variety is essentially a garden Rose, and we recommend 
it with the utmost confidence. 




Mme. Ravary. Very distinct in color, which is deep yellow, 
shading lighter as the flower opens. 

Mrs. A. R. Waddell. An attractive, rosy salmon in the bud 
and reverse of petals, opening suffused golden yellow. A 
very lovely combination of colors; fine for bedding. 

Mrs. George Shawyer. An extensive trial has proved this 
excellent forcing Rose to be an ideal bedding variety. In 
color it is a bright, clear rose pink, carrying large, full, well- 
formed flowers on stiff, erect stems. Free and good. 

Manuel P. Azevedo. Fresh, cerise red; large, full flowers on 
erect stems. 

Lady Alice Stanley 

General Superior Arnold Jannsen. Deep, glowing car- 
mine; large, full, deep flowers; finely formed buds, carried 
on erect, robust stems; very fragrant. An excellent Rose 
for bedding and cut flower purposes. 

Paul Lede. Carmine rose, shaded yellow; large, fairly full, 
cup-shaped, sweetly-scented flowers, produced freely. An 
attractive garden Rose. 

Killarney. Perhaps the most %videly known and popular 
Rose in existence. Color bright, sparkling pink, shading 
to white; long, pointed buds, opening into a large, well- 
formed flower; very fragrant, hardy, and extremely free 
flowering. A most desirable garden Rose. 

Lady Alice Stanley. Deep, clear rose color; inside of the 
bloom pale flesh. A very attractive Rose. The blooms are 
large, of great substance, and are produced freely. The 
Rose is exceptionally hardy. 

Lady Ashton. Soft rose pink, shading to yellow at the base 
of the petals. A splendid, free-flowering, long-stemmed 
garden Rose. Useful for cutting. 

Lady Pirrie. Outside of petals coppery, reddish salmon; 
apricot yellow, flushed fawn, and copper on the inside. Not 
a very double flower, but an excellent bedding Rose. 

Lady Downe. Buff, shading to deep yellow, changing to a 
pale yellow; large flowers carried on vigorous growths. A 
good garden and decorative variety of recent introduction. 

Luise Lilia. A charming, semi-double, garden Rose of an 
intense blood-red color. Free flowering, and one ot the 
most fragrant varieties in existence. 

Madame Abel Chatenay. Carmine rose, shaded salmon. 
One of the most satisfactory garden and bedding Roses. 

Mme. Jennie Guillemot. A soft, delicate shade of yellow. 
Has long buds, developing into large flowers of good sub- 
stance. A very attractive Rose, and a most excellent bed- 
ding variety. 

Mme. Jules Grolez. Beautiful satiny China Rose, shaded 
yellow at the base of petals; long, pointed buds, opening to 
large, well-formed flowers; remarkably free. One of the 
very best bedding Roses. 

Mme. Melanie Soupert. A soft blending of salmon yellow, 
suffused pink and carmine, petals almost transparent. 
Beautiful in bud; free and vigorous. A superb Rose in 
every respect. 

Mme. Paul Euler. Vermilion silvery pink in color. Perfect 
in form; large, full and very fragrant. This Rose is being 
sold on the Pacific Coast under the name Prima Donna. 

Konigin Carola. An enormous, but well- formed flower, in 
the way of Caroline Testout. Color satiny rose, reverse of 
petals silvery white. A free-flowering Rose of excellent 

La France. One of the oldest and most popular Hybrid 
Tea Roses, occasionally found difficult to grow, but one of 
the best Roses under congenial conditions. Color beauti- 
ful pale pink, with silvery reflex; a large, full, fragrant 
flower, very highly perfumed. 

Mme. Melanie Soupert 




Rhea Reid. Vigorous in growth, with heavy, double flowers. 
Color cherry crimson, strongly resembling General Mac- 
Arthur. An excellent Rose for bedding and cut flowers. 
Richmond. A well-known, scarlet crimson forcing and 
garden variety; very fragrant and free. Particularly good 
in early Summer. 

Senateur Mascurand. Amber yellow, with yolk-of-egg 
center, toning to light sulphur yellow; large, full and 
globular in form. 

Souvenir de President Carnot. Flesh, shaded white. An 
attractive flower of large size and excellent form. 
Sunburst. Grown in the garden, this variety is not very 
free in flowering, but the blooms, particularly during the 
Autumn, are of excellent color, being suffused orange cop- 
per and golden yellow; vigorous and a fine exhibition Rose. 

Tea Roses 

On their Own Roots 

Among the few bedding Roses that really do well on their 
own roots, the three following varieties are the best. 

For the benefit of those who do not like the budded Rose, 
we offer strong, 2-year, field-grown plants, own root. With 
protection they will over-Winter as readily as the hardy Hybrid 
Tea varieties. 

Maman Ccchet. Beautiful rose pink, outer petals splashed 
bright rose; extra strong in growth, flowering in the greatest 
profusion; very double and equally fine in the bud or open 
flower. This variety is generally known as Pink Maman 
Cochet, and is one of the most reliable bedding Roses. 

GARDEN ROSES — Continued 


White Maman Cochet. A pure white sport of Maman 
Cochet, that is a counterpart of its parent, except in color. 
It is highly recommended as one of our best white garden 
Roses. Occasionally tinged blush or rose. 

Wm. R. Smith. One of the finest garden Roses of American 
origin. Color creamy white, flushed and suffused w ith 
bright, rosy pink; somewhat similar to Maman Cochet, 
but distinct in point of growth and habit. This Rose is 
sometimes offered under the synonyms, Maiden’s Blush, 
Charles Dingee and Jeanette Heller. A fine, free, garden 

Price of Tea Roses on their own roots: 2-year-old plants, 
5-inch pots: 40c. each, $4.00 per doz., $30.00 per 100. 


Harry Kirk. Bright primrose, amber yellow, passing to a 
lighter shade at the edges of the petals; very fragrant. A 
vigorous, free-branching Rose of excellent habit. One of 
the best Tea Roses. 

Lady Hillingdon. Deep golden yellow in color; the finest 
and most highly colored of all the yellow Roses. The 
growth, though not robust, is remarkably vigorous and of a 
desirable branching habit. The deep apricot buds are 
long and pointed, and most dainty when cut before the 
flower opens fully; the flower, when open, is not too full,

Austrian Briar varieties w< ith the bedding types, varying some- 
what in habit and containing new and wonderful shades of

American Pillar 

American Pillar. A single-flowered variety, bearing pink 
flowers in heavy trusses. It retains its foliage until late in 
the Fall and is very ornamental. 

Baltimore Belle. Pale blush, passing to white; very double 
flowers in beautiful, large clusters. A fine old climbing 

Christine Wright. This beautiful new Wichuraiana Hy- 
brid, of which the variety Caroline Testout is a parent, 
takes its fine color — a bright wild rose pink — from the latter, 
and, in part, the form, which is quite double and will meas- 
sure from three and one-half to four inches in diameter. 
The flowers are produced in quantities, coming singly and 
in clusters. The period of display is of greater duration 
than in the majority of the climbers. Growth strong and 
of a rugged, branching character. We regard this as one 
of the most attractive climbing Roses. 

From 5-in. pots: 75c. per plant. 

Climbing American Beauty. A fine, new, free-blooming 
climber of excellent habit. Strong and vigorous in growth, 
making heavy canes from 10 to 15 feet in a single season.

ally throughout the season. Very fragrant; a fine Rose. 

From 5-in. pots: 75c. per plant. 

Crimson Rambler. A well-known and very popular vari- 
ety. A strong, rank grower that produces heavy trusses of 
brilliant, double, crimson flowers in great profusion. 

Orleans. Brilliant cerise in color, with white 
eye at center. A very fine variety. 

Suzanna. (New). A dwarf variety produc- 
ing trusses of light pink flowers in the great- 
est abundance. The introducer recommends 
it as one of the best Baby Ramblers for bed- 
ding yet introduced. 

$1.00 each, $10.00 per doz. 

Triomphe Orleanais. Large, individual 
flowers in splendid trusses. Attractive, vig- 
orous growth. Color, bright cherry red 
which does not fade or purple. A great 
improvement on the popular Baby Rambler. 

50c. each, $5.00 per doz. 




Dorothy Perkins. A splendid variety. Bright, glossy 
foliage that always looks healthy, and beautiful clusters of 
pink flowers. It is to be highly recommended for general 
planting, owing to its hardiness under all conditions. It 
is used extensively for arches and pergolas, as it is a very 
strong-growing variety. 

Excelsa (Red Dorothy Perkins). Having the dark, glossy, 
disease-resisting foliage peculiar to the Wichuraiana type. 
This new variety is not susceptible to mildew and other 
fungous diseases affecting the Crimson Rambler. The 
growth is very vigorous and healthy in appearance, resem- 
bling in this respect Dorothy Perkins. Flowers are very 
double, produced in large trusses of thirty to forty blossoms, 
which, individually, are unusually large for a climbing 
Rose. The color is intense crimson maroon, tinged scarlet 
on the edges of the petals. Without doubt the best red 

Gardenia. Bright yellow, paler as flower expands. The 
nearest approach to a full, yellowy climbing Rose. Very 
vigorous. A desirable variety. 

Dr. Van Fleet. Flesh pink on the outer surface, deepening 
to rosy flesh in the center. The flowers are full, very 
double, and carried on good stems, resembling Souvenir de 
President Carnot (one of the parents) in color. The flower, 
when open, will measure four inches or more in diameter, 
and is highly built in the center. Strong and handsome in 
growth. A superb variety. 

From 5-inch pots: 75c. per plant. 

Hiawatha. The most brilliant-colored single Rose. In 
color a brilliant carmine, with a clear white eye and a mass of 
golden stamens. It is a glowing combination of color and a 
variety you must know to appreciate. 

Lady Gay. Vigorous in growth, with flowers of delicate 
cerise pink in heavy clusters. The combination of deep 
pink buds, shading to softer pink in the open flower, com- 
bined with the glossy, green foliage, makes this variety one 
of the most charming of the Ramblers. 

Leuchstern. Bright rose, large, white eye. A very beauti- 
ful, single Rose of the Rambler type. Flowers early, and 
remains in bloom a long time; attractive even when fading. 
A superb Rose. 

Minnehaha. Deep rose; very double flowers, produced 
freely in small panicles. From 5-inch pots: 75c. per plant. 

Miss G. Messman. A strong-growing, climbing form of the 
Baby Rambler; flowers profusely in June, and more or less 
through the Autumn. 

Newport Fairy. With flowers of deep pink, shading lighter 
toward the center, this is one of the most valuable single 
Roses. Its large clusters are borne in great profusion, 
and the variety is a strong grower. 

Sodenia. A scarlet Wichuraiana, producing its flowers in 
large trusses like Dorothy Perkins, and in great profusion. 
Its foliage is hard and not susceptible to mildew, and it is 
hoped that this novelty will fill a long-felt requirement as a 
scarlet Wichuraiana. 

Silver Moon. This new Rose is of the same strong growth as 
Dr. Van Fleet. Foliage beautiful bronze green; mildew 
proof. Flowers are very large, and produced on strong 
stems. Color silvery white, with prominent yellow stamens. 
Very fragrant and attractive. Strong plants from five- 
inch pots. 75c. each. 

Dr. Van Fleet 





Tausendschon. An entirely distinct Rose. The individual 
flowers are large and of a most elegant and graceful form. 
In color, a most delightful shade of soft pink. Produced in 
trusses. It is to many the most attractive and charming of 
the climbing Roses. 

White Dorothy Perkins. A counterpart of Dorothy Perkins, 
except in color. Showing a faint trace of pink in bud, 
opening to a pure white flower, it is the most choice of the 
White Ramblers. 

Wich-Moss. An interesting hybrid, between Wichuraiana 
and the Moss Rose Salet. Color pink, reverse of petals 
dark pink; flowers sweetly scented and finely mossed. The 
vigorous branches are covered with small thorns, like the 
Moss Rose. A truly mossed, climbing Rose, flowering in 
trusses. From 5-inch pots: 75c. per plant. 

Wichuraiana. (The True Memorial Rose.) A valuable 
trailing species recently introduced from Japan. Pure 
white, single flowers, with showy, golden-yellow anthers, 
produced in clusters. The growths creep rapidly on the 
ground, forming a dense mat of glossy, dark green foliage. 
A very useful Rose for cemetery planting, covering steep 
banks, rockwork, or for masking unsightly ground objects. 

Price of Climbing and Rambler Roses: Strong, 2-vear 
plants from 5-inch pots: 50c. each, $5.00 per doz., 
$35.00 per 100, except where noted.

We present to you this list of 
Carnations, knowing it to be the 
choice of all existing varieties. 

New additions appear in our 
Carnation list from year to 
year, supplanting older varie- 
ties whose usefulness has in a 
considerable measure been 
outlived, or which do not 
equal the newer varieties 
in valuable characteristics. 

We do not offer 
all the novelties of 

the year, believing it 
wise to select only those 
which, after inspection, 
we think will find a per- 
manent place in our Carna- 
tion houses and be valuable 
to our customers. Colors that 
are desirable, backed by plant 
habit that will insure pro- 
ductiveness and a calyx that 
will not burst are essentials 
not overlooked in choosing 
new Carnations. 

Part of our stock is grown 
for cuttings only. This gives us, clean, 
healthy cuttings, and insures our being 
able to meet the demand. 

New Carnations for 1915 

Alice. (Fisher.) Beautifully formed flowers of medium size; shell pink 
in color. As a plant the variety shows freedom of growth that is 
remarkable and the formation of flower and calyx insures freedom 
from splits. It is a variety that any one may plant with perfect con- 

Rooted Cuttings: .$2.25 per doz., $16.00 per 100. 

2J<4-inch : 30c. each, $3.00 per doz., $20.00 per 100. 

Good Cheer. ( Dorner .) In color a true rose pink. The flowers are of 
medium size and perfect in form. The plant makes no surplus growth, 
but every growth is a flowering shoot. We consider Good Cheer 
to be the finest variety in this most desirable color. 

Rooted Cuttings: $2.25 per doz., $16.00 per 100. 

234-inch: 30c. each, $3.00 per doz., $20.00 per 100. 

Sensation. (Dorner.) A fight pink that will class with the fancy 
varieties. The flowers are large and nicely formed. 

Rooted Cuttings: $2.25 per doz., $16.00 per 100. 

23^-inch: 30c. each, $3.00 per doz., $20.00 per 100. 

Introductions of 1914 

Champion. According to the general experience of all who have 
grown it, this new scarlet has lived up to the predictions of the intro- 
ducers. It is very bright in color, beautifully formed, and has shown 
itself to be of vigorous habit and a big producer. 

Rooted Cuttings: 10c. each, $1.00 per doz., $8.00 per 100 

234-inch: 15c. each, $1.50 per doz., $12.00 per 100. 

Gorgeous. This is the “ American Beauty ” of the Carnation family. 
It is a giant in growth and flowers freely, but not so profifically as 
smaller varieties. In color it may be described as rich, glowing crim- 
son suffused with brilliant vermilion. 

Rooted Cuttings: 10c. each, $1.00 per doz., $8.00 per 100. 

23^-inch: 15c. each, $1.50 per doz., $12.00 per 100.

CARNATIONS — Continued 

Standard Varieties 

Rooted Cuttings: ioc. each, 75c. per doz., $4.00 per 100. 234-inch: 
15c. each, $1.00 per doz., S7.50 per 100. 

Beacon. In color, a glowing scarlet; excellent habit; Beacon has for 
years been the standard for scarlet Carnations. 

Benora. The best variegated variety ever introduced. It also is 
extremely free. Flower large, full, and of perfect form. Color cream 
white, beautifully penciled with bright red. Stem long and wiry, 
with narrow foliage. This Carnation stands head and shoulders 
above anything else in its class. 

Enchantress. Shell pink in color. It makes an excellent plant 
and is one of the standard varieties. We consider Enchantress 
Supreme to be an improvement on this variety, from which it is 
a sport. 

Eureka. Scarlet seedling from Beacon. Habit similar to Beacon, 
flower a trifle smaller with better calyx. 

May Day. An excellent commercial variety. It is very free and its 
even shade of pink is much desired. 

Mrs. C. W. Ward. In color a very pleasing shade of pink. In 
growth and habit it is all that could be desired, being thrifty and 
clean and making an abundance of flowering shoots. 

Rosette. A dark pink in color. Flower large, full, and deep; calyx 
perfect. Strong, healthy, clean-growing plant. 

White Enchantress. Pure white in color. For general use 
there is none better than White Enchantress. 

. White Wonder. Large pure white bloom borne on long 

NOVELTIES OF 1914 Continued stems. The habit of the plant is to form all flowering shoots 

Matchless. As a plant maker and a producer of high grade w } th no surplus growth. It is one of the finest white vari- 

bloom, Matchless has shown itself to be one of the finest eties and very widely grown, 

white Carnations ever introduced. In form of flower it is 
ideal and it makes strong stems which hold the flowers erect. 

We do not hesitate to recommend Matchless. We have 
8000 planted and it is showing itself to be all that was 
claimed for it. It shows a trace of pink during the colder 
months which adds to rather than detracts from its beauty. 

In keeping qualities it is unsurpassed. 

Rooted Cuttings: 10c. each, $1.00 per doz., $8.00 per 100. 

234-inch: 15c. each, $1.50 per doz., $12.00 per 100. 

Princess Dagmar. In color a very rich deep crimson. The 
habit of the plant is excellent and it is as good a producer 
as any variety could be expected to be which produces 
flowers of this quality. Strong heavy stems hold the 
flowers erect and place the variety alone in its class as the 
best fancy crimson carnation. 

Rooted Cuttings: 10c. each, $1.00 per doz., $8.00 per 100. 

234- inch: 15c. each, $1.50 per doz., $12.00 per 100. 

Philadelphia. Clear rose pink in color; flowers large and 
well-formed; stems long and straight. The calyx is of the 
best. It is a variety with a strong constitution. 

Rooted Cuttings: 10c. each, $1.00 per doz., $8.00 per 100. 

234-inch: 15c. each, $1.50 per doz., $12.00 per 100. 

Enchantress Supreme. This sport of Enchantress was 
disseminated in 1913. Enchantress and the sports of this 
variety have been of the highest value to all Carnation 
growers and our results are proving Enchantress Supreme 
to be the most valuable of this family. It is a light salmon 
pink, not only an attractive color but a color which endures 
exposure to the sun without bleaching. The calyx is longer 
than that of the parent variety and has shown no tendency 
to burst. There are less petals which insures better formed 
flowers. The growth is almost identical with that of the 
parent, making it a dependable variety and worthy of a 
place in every Carnation house. 

Rooted Cuttings: 10c. each, 75c. per doz., $5.00 per 100.

CHR Y SANTHEMUMS — Con t inued 

General Purpose Yarieties—Novelties of 1914 

Edwin Seidewitz. An incurved pink that will mature for 
Thanksgiving Day cutting. It will fill a place in the 
Chrysanthemum world that has been open for a long time. 
In color and form the flower is all that can be desired. 
Late plantings are to be preferred and perfection can be 
secured by planting not earlier than the middle of June. 

Golden Eaton. A sportof the old favorite, Yellow Eaton, being 
several shades darker, making it a clear bright yellow in color. 

Greystone. A beautiful shade of chamois-bronze; dwarf 
habit; to be recommended for pot plants and an excellent 
variety when grown to single stems. Reflexed type; flower 
very distinct from any other variety in cultivation. 

Edwin Seidewitz 

Improved Golden Chadwick. Judging from 10,000 plants 
of this sport grown side by side with the same quantity of 
Golden Chadwick, the difference between them is in coloring 
more than in any other charactersitic. It is brighter yel- 
low by several shades. It matured a week later and with 
blooms of practically the same size. 

Rooted Cuttings: $1.00 per doz., $6.00 per 100. 

234-in.: $1.25 per doz., $7.50 per 100. 

Indian Summer. This variety is a sport from Golden 
Chadwick, originating with us in 1911. We have grown 
the variety in quantity to make certain that the odd color 
is in demand. The wonderfully beautiful effects which can 
be had by the proper setting will be recognized by those 
who understand floral art and it is to these men that a 
novelty of this sort will appeal. In color the ground work 
is yellow^ but into this is blended the terra cotta and salmon 
shades with a tinge of bronze. The color of Autumn foliage 
during Indian Summer in a measure describes the coloring. 

improved Golden Chadwick

Thanksgiving or later. In color, white, tinged with pink.

maturing October 20th to 25th. It is of the button type

we believe, the finest yellow Pompon in existence for cutting

the Oyster Bay Horticultural Society and a certificate 
of merit by the Horticultural Society cf New York. 

Peace. It is seldom that the C. S. A. cup for the best seedling 
of the year is awarded to a Pompon and we are fortunate to

cup, under the name “Peace.” It is a strong growing va- 
riety producing an abundance of flowering shoots. The 
color is white, showing, however, a tinge of pink in the bud 
stage. It matures about November 10th. It is distinct

Hardy Early Flowering Type 

The early flowering type is a development of recent years and has 
proven to be of great value for outdoor use. The flowers are larger 
than the Pompons and embrace a range of very desirable colors. Their 
early flowering insures maturity of bloom before frost; and being hardy, 
they will live from year to year. Protect with leaves during the Winter 
and be certain the soil is well drained.

Glory of Cincinnati. This variety is a strong grower, with large, 
heavy foliage. Its flowers are a beautiful shade of pink, and carried 
well above the foliage. The accompanying illustration shows the 
general character of the plant when finished. As the foliage is heavy 
the variety makes proportionately less leaves, and since the variety 
is propagated from leaf cuttings it will always remain in short supply 

Gloire de Lorraine. Beautiful, clear pink in color, and a very protuse 
bloomer. It is similar in color to the Cincinnati, but it flowers in 
greater profusion. The foliage and flowers, however, are smaller.

it nicely to making up Christmas foliage or flowering pans.

Gloire de Lorraine 





In the growing of Cyclamen there are several very important things to 
■onsider. First, the character of the seed, and second, the condition 
>f the plant when it reaches shipping size. After that, the finishing de- 
fends on the skill of the person caring for it during the Summer 
months, when partial shade and an abundance of ventilation are so 
Absolutely necessary. Cyclamen must be kept clean from insects to in- 
jure success. When finished they are one of our finest house plants 
ind continue in flower for a great length of time. We have used the 
Dest seed obtainable, and our next Spring’s plants are coming nicely.

Gladioli are among the most popular of the garden plants and are 
easy of culture. Continuous effect with these can be had by successive 
plantings, beginning as soon as the ground is in condition to work in 
the Spring and continuing at intervals until June. For mass effects, 
planting in beds is advisable, but when grown for cutting, single rows 
twelve inches apart and the bulbs from three to four inches apart in the 
rows will give satisfaction. A soil that is medium light will give good 
results. The bulbs may be wintered in a cellar that is kept above 
frost, much as Potatoes are stored, and will flower in successive seasons. 

The list of varieties which we offer are the choicest known. Many of 
them are new, but are chosen by us because they show the improve- 
ment that has come in recent years, and are the best varieties obtain- 
able. All prices quoted are for bulbs of flowering size.

The Perennials 


A perennial plant is one which is hardy. It dies down with the approach of Winter, reappearing with the coming of 
Spring to again bloom forth in greater profusion and with added vigor. This, the nature of perennials, is usually understood, 
but it sometimes happens that they are planted with the misconception that when once planted they are perfectly able to 
take care of themselves for all time. As a result, we witness a rather emphatic demonstration of “ the survival of the fittest.” 
In your hardy border “the fittest” must be kept within its allotted bounds and divided as often as necessary if you wish re- 
sults from the entire planting. 

Strong-growing kinds such as Phlox, Boltonia, Achillea, Hardy Aster, Chrysanthemum, Rudbeckia, etc., should be taken 
up every second year, divided, and planted in renewed soil; Japanese and German Iris, Poppies, Hermerocallis, Funkia and 
so on, every third year, and the smaller growing kinds as often as their condition warrants it. 


In the preparation of the border the soil should be dug to a depth of eighteen inches — more if it is practicable — and the 
soil well pulverized and enriched with well decomposed stable manure, to which a good sprinkling of coarse bone meal might, 
be added to advantage. The preparation should be completed some time before the arrival of the plants, permitting the soil 
to become somewhat settled. 

With the plants on hand, the surface can be loosened up with a rake and the plants spaced out properly before any plant- 
ing is attempted. The actual arrangement of the groups, must, of course, be a matter of personal taste, but the matter of 
height should be kept in mind. Keep the tall-growing kinds in the rear or background, tapering the planting down to the 
foreground with the dwarfer kinds, avoiding a stiff, unnatural arrangement by departing from this rule, permitting an occa- 
sional group or plant to stand clear of its neighbors. The Peony makes an excellent specimen plant for this purpose. 

Planting can usually be done with a trowel, making the holes large enough to receive the plants comfortably. If dor- 
mant, the plants should be set just deep enough to cover the crowns. Pot-grown plants should be set deep enough to cover 
the ball or soil from one to three inches, according to their size. The soil, when replaced, should be well firmed, forming a 
slight depression or saucer around each plant to retain sufficient water, which should be applied generously but not too forcibly. 
In a day or two the surface should be sufficiently dry to permit raking level, when each plant should get a final firming. 




Spring is the season usually selected for planting opera- 
tions and is undoubtedly the safest time to plant. The one 
objection to Spring planting is that if it is not completed in 
the first early days, the plants having started, are apt to 
either die or appear sickly and unattractive throughout the 
season. As it is not always convenient to plant early in the 
season we overcome any risk attached to later planting by 
potting practically all of our perennials (which have grown in 
the field during the Summer) in early Fall, wintering them 
over in coldframes. We can supply well-established plants, 
each with a ball of soil, as late in the season as it is prac- 
ticable to plant. 


The selection of varieties to plant will depend largely on 
their location. If a single group or bed is desired, it will be 
better to make the planting individual in character and plant 
only one kind — Sweet William, Canterbury Bells, Hollyhock, 
Delphinium, or whatever seems appropriate. If an old- 
fashioned mixed border planting is desired, the most satis- 
factory arrangement would be to group several plants of a 

kind together, making the groups in proportion to the border. 
Select varieties that will flower at various seasons, rendering 
the border attractive and interesting throughout the season. 


During the Spring months the border should be cultivated 
frequently to dispose of the weeds and provide the best pos- 
sible growing conditions. As the hot Summer months come 
on, the border should be mulched with an inch or two of stable 
fitter, and the plants watered frequently. The old flower 
stems should be cut down from time to time, not only as a 
matter of appearance, but to induce an additional crop of 
flowers on those that are disposed to flower again — the Del- 
phinium, for instance. The taller growing lands which flower 
in late Summer and Fall should be neatly staked by the 
time the flower heads appear, or they will become straggly on 
opening and the stems are liable to break off at the ground. 

The best Winter protection for the border would be a cover 
of two or three inches of stable litter applied in early Novem- 
ber, and for the more tender kinds an additional covering of 
leaves, which should be removed gradually in the early 

Hardy Herbaceous Perennials 


Extremely hardy border plants of simple culture, excellent for mass- 
ing or mixed plantings; the flowers when cut are very useful for decora- 
tion or bouquet work. 

Perry’s White. (New.) Tins novelty will undoubtedly supersede all 
other varieties for cutting or garden decoration. The individual flow- 
ers are larger and more double than Boule de Neige or The Pearl; the 
petals are broad and over-lapping and arranged so that the center of 
the flower does not show at any stage. In character, the plant is 
robust and very profuse in flowering. We consider this novelty, 
after a thorough trial, to be one of the most valuable additions to 
the hardy border plants. 35c. each, $3.50 per doz.

of varieties in commerce, we have, by a most rigid selection, eliminated every kind that is not entirely distinct and desirable, 
keeping only the best in their respective colors. We offer a select assortment that includes the very cream of the Phlox family.

Specimen Shrubs: 35c. each. 

BUDDLEIA. Butterfly Bush 

The greatly improved varieties offered here are genuine ac- 
quisitions among sub-shrubs. Although they really belong 
in the shrub grouping, they are of equal value in the perennial 
border where they enhance the display from early July until 
frost by their profusion of fragrant violet-colored racemes, 
and where they prove a great attraction to bees and butter- 
flies — hence the popular name. While they attain a growth 
of five or six feet and are quite hardy, the wood dies back near 
the ground ; the new growth appearing from the base. During 
Winter the plants should be protected with soil or coarse 
manure to a height of 18 inches from the ground.

flowers. An excellent companion to the above. 

Strong plants: 25c. each, $2.50 per doz. 

Extra large size: 50c. each, $5.00 per doz. 


Excellent subjects for planting individually, grouping in 
favorite nooks and corners, or for formal effects. The bush- 
shaped plants are particularly at home in the old-fashioned 
hardy garden, where they are used mostly for hedging. 
Pyramid-shaped. Two and one-half to three feet, in tubs: 
$3.00 each. Three and one-half to four and one-half feet, in 
tubs: $3.50 to $5.00 each. 

Bush-shaped. 15 to 18 inches high: 75c. to $1.00 each. 

CORNUS. Flowering Dogwood 

Floridus alba. The native white flowering is one of the very 
best medium-sized ornamental trees. It is effectively used 
as a specimen tree mixed in the border with other shrubs 
and trees, but perhaps appears to best advantage skirting 
the woodland border. 

2)^2 to 3 feet: 75c. each, $7.50 per doz. 

Floridus rubra. A magnificent rosy red flowering variety 
that is still hard to obtain. Contrasts effectively with alba. 

21-2 to 3 feet: $1.00 each, $10.00 per doz. 


Japonica. A handsome shrub bearing single yellow flowers 
throughout the Summer. The green wood forms a decided 
contrast among other shrubs during Winter. 

Japonica fl. pi. A very double, deep yellow form of the 

Japonica variegata. The dwarf habit and cleanly, varie- 
gated foliage of this variety makes it especially valuable for 
edging shrub groups or low massing where a touch of color 
is desired. 

2 to 3 feet: 35c. each, $3.50 per doz. 




DESMODIUM. Sweet Pea Shrub 

Penduliflorum. A handsome shrub, the wood of which 
dies down each Winter to reappear again in season. A 
good subject for the perennial border. Rosy purple flowers, 
Pea-shaped. Three to four feet. Autumn. 

2 years old: 35c. each, $3.50 per doz.

some, double, pure white flowers in erect panicles. Three 
feet. June. 35c. each, $3.50 per doz. 

Crenata rosea fl. pi. Rosy pink; similar to the above, but 
perhaps more showy. 

Gracilis. A dwarf-growing variety, with slender branches 
completely covered with sweetly-scented, pure white flowers 
during May and June. 

15 to 18 inches: 25c. each, $2.50 per doz. 

Gracilis rosea. A lovely, rose-colored form of the pre- 

15 to 18 inches: 25c. each, $2.50 per doz. 

Gracilis Lemoinei. A decided improvement on Deutzia 
gracilis, with larger and more numerous, pure white flowers. 
Two feet. 35c. each, $3.50 per doz. 

Pride of Rochester. A tall-growing variety that com- 
pletely obscures the plant with quantities of pure white, 
double flowers. Very beautiful as an individual specimen, 
and one of the most effective flowering shrubs for grouping, 
or massing heavily in the shrub border. June. 

3 feet: 35c. each, $3.50 per doz. 

4 feet: 50c. each, 5.00 per doz.

leaved variety that one occasionally meets, noting its rich 
color distinct from the common variety. One of our best 
ornamental specimen trees. 

Strong plants: 3 to 4 feet high, $1.50 each. 

Deutzia Lemoinei 

FORSYTHIA. Golden Bell 

One of the very first of the shrubs to flower in Spring, 
producing masses of deep golden blossoms in early Aj ril, a 
time when flowers of any kind are particularly desirable; the 
vivid color contrasting effectively with the flora of Spring, 
enhancing the surroundings greatly, pending the arrival of 
the foliage of Summer. 

This is one of the few flowering shrubs that should not be 
pruned during Winter. After flowering, the strong growths 
can be cut back and pruned sufficiently hard to produce a 
well-balanced growth for the succeeding season’s flowers. 
Fortunei. Blooms in dense masses of golden yellow flowers. 
April and May. Two to three feet. 

35c. each, $3.50 per doz. 

Intermedia. A strong-growing variety of more erect 
growth, flowering a little later. 

3 to 4 feet: 25c. each, $2.50 per doz. 

5 to 6 feet: 50c. each, 5.00 per doz. 

Suspensa (Weeping Golden Bell). A fine, early -flowering 
kind of pendulous habit, covered with yellow, drooping 

Strong plants: 25c. each, $2.50 per doz. 

4 to 5 feet: 50c. each, 5.00 per doz. 

Viridissima. Bright yellow, bell-shaped flowers, appearing 

early before the foliage develops. Three to four feet. 

35c. each, $3.50 per doz. 

(Variety Otaksa) 

The variety used extensively for outdoor use. It produces 
immense heads of flowers that last a long time. These blooms 
are usually pink in color, but along our Atlantic coast take on 
a blue tinge, making them very attractive. This color is 
due to certain soil conditions. The addition of a small 
amount of powdered alum to the soil will produce this blue 

Plants for Summer flowering should be Wintered just above 
frost and allowed to start growth slowly in the Spring. We 
have a nice lot of large plants for Summer flowering in tubs. 
These we offer for late Spring and early Summer shipment. 

From $3.50 to $5.00 each, according to size. 




Hydrangea paniculata grandiflora 


Arborescens grandiflora alba. This magnificent, new 
Snowball Hydrangea is one of the finest of the hardy 
American shrubs. The flowers are pure white, very large, 
and similar to the tender Otaksa in form; produced in 
quantity from June until August. It is at its best in a 
somewhat moist location and is absolutely hardy, producing 
its flowers from the new wood from year to year. As 
an ornamental shrub it is the greatest acquisition of recent 
years and is of great value for cutting purposes. 

Strong plants: 50c. each, $5.00 per doz. 

Extra heavy clumps: $1.00 each, $10.00 per doz. 

Paniculata grandiflora. Undoubtedly the most popular 
shrub grown, bearing immense heads of creamy white 
flowers, which later assume attractive rose shades, remain- 
ing in excellent condition for many weeks. One of the 
best shrubs for massing or planting individually. 

Strong plants: 25c. each, $2.50 per doz. 

Extra heavy plants: 50c. each, 5.00 per doz.

Berberis Thunbergii (Japanese Barberry). Where a low, 
dense hedge is desired, this Barberry is in a class by itself. 
Its spreading habit and dense growth, filling out solidly from 
the ground up, soon form a symmetrical and attractive 
hedge. During the early Winter the plants are covered 
with bright red berries. Absolutely hardy anywhere. 
Plants should be spaced about one foot apart. 

Strong plants, 18 to 24 inches high: $2.00 per doz., 

$15.00 per 100. 

California Privet. As a free-growing, ornamental hedge 
plant the California Privet cannot be equaled. The foliage 
is a dark, rich, glossy green, and remains on the plant until 
Midwinter. The growth is vigorous, producing rapidly a 
hedge of good height. The plants should be pruned back 
hard when first planted to build up a good bottom growth or 
foundation, afterward trimming them as frequently as 
necessary to keep in good form. The method of planting 
zig-zag or alternating the plants in a double row usually 
results in a heavy hedge lacking in proportion ; we recommend 
planting in a single row, one-year size, nine inches apart; 
two-year size, 12 inches apart. 

One-vear size, 18 to 24 inches: $3.00 per 100, $25.00 per 

1000 . 

Two-year size, 24 to 36 inches: $5.00 per 100, $40.00 per 
1000 .

drooping gracefully to the ground. 

Strong, pot-grown plants, 18 to 24 inches: $1.25 each._ 

LILAC. Syringa 

The Lilac is one of the old garden favorites that will ever be 
popular. Hardiness, attractive growth, and an abundance of 
sweet-scented panicles of bloom are qualities that have es- 
tablished it as an inseparable part of the hardy shrub border 
or doorway planting. The common Lilacs are vigorous in 
growth, attaining a height of eight or ten feet; newer named 
varieties are more dwarf in habit.
