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 wood. Salet, deep pink; White Perpetual, pure white; and Crested, rose-color, are the most desirable sorts.
