Mrs. R. B. E., Melrose, Mass., writes: "I have tried two of the newer tea roses this summer - Marie Guillot and Comtesse Riza de Pare - and find them very much superior to the generality of tea roses for bedding purposes. They are extremely vigorous in growth, especially the latter, and most profuse in bloom. Marie Guillot is a rich creamy white, and Comtesse Riza de Pare is a peculiar shade of salmon-rose, tinted with copper. It is full, globular in form, and one of the most satisfactory roses, both in habit and flower, that I have ever used".
