Of this class we need not speak in detail to any who have ever seen its
delicate moss-covered buds, and inhaled their delightful odor. They are
perfectly hardy, and can be wintered without any protection. They are
called perpetual, but this is a
misnomer, for we know but one variety of
Moss Rose that approaches it, that is the Salet Moss. The rest are no
more so than are the so-called Hybrid Perpetuals.
Moss Roses should be severely pruned in spring, removing all the old
Salet, deep pink; White Perpetual, pure white; and Crested,
rose-color, are the most desirable sorts.
