Mr. Thomas Elmitt, gardener here, has a Marechal Niel Rose that will give him the extraordinary yield of not less than five thousand buds this winter; at present there is no less than one thousand on it at one time. There seems to be several varieties of this rose - this one shows a much stronger constitution than any other. I have seen cuttings taken from it and grown alongside of others always show this ; it is planted out in the end of his greenhouse, runs along the rafters fifty feet. Can any one beat this rose?
