Ellwanger & Barry say this was raised by them from seed of the Marie Van Houtte, and has been tested in their houses for some time. It is of slender yet healthy growth; foliage small, dark green; flower small, a little larger than Paquerette, and of a deep pink color, about the shade of Madame Lambard. It is very pretty in bud, and the open flowers are of good substance, and remain perfect for a long time. It has a pleasing fragrance. One of its prominent traits is remarkable freedom of bloom, every shoot producing a flower. We consider it a distinct and charming miniature rose, and a valuable addition to the list of varieties suitable for forcing.
