While in the more temperate parts of our country the Noisette roses cannot be planted, we must confine ourselves to the hardy varieties. They are too well known to need any comment. They propagate easily, and when planting them out they should be protected for the first few years or till they get a good start.

Some of the best of them are: Baltimore Belle, blush white; Bennett's Seedling, pure white; Gem of the Prairies, rosy carmine; Dundee Rambler, pure white; Allister Stella Gray, orange; and several others.

For this purpose, too, we have the magnificent ramblers, of which the Crimson Rambler was the forerunner. There are now yellow, pink and white forms of it, and as hardy climbing roses they are unequalled.

The hardy climbers have a fine burst of bloom in June, but do not flower again that season.
