The National catalogue has two great classes: (1) Exhibition Roses; (2) Garden Roses. The sub-sections of the latter are very numerous, and include most of those named above, together with many others. The truth is, "garden" Roses is a very elastic term, for it practically embraces all except the florists' varieties seen on the show board, and even some of them are in the best sense of the term garden as well as exhibition Roses.

Every Rose is a "garden" Rose, in the broad meaning of the term as it is used now, which is many flowered, or cluster flowered, or good for bedding or rambling, or in any sense whatever decorative. From this point of view Cooling's Yellow Noisette is a "garden" Rose, so is Souvenir de Catherine Guillot, so are Bellefleur, Claire Jacquier, and, indeed, any and every sort that serves a distinct decorative rather than a show purpose.
