Moss Roses

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.
