This new climbing rose will be found one of the most valuable in the Southern States. In the Northern States it will do for summer exposure or greenhouse culture only. It grows to a height of six to ten feet in one season, blooming monthly. The bud is of dark rich crimson, becoming somewhat lighter when expanded, quite fragrant. It is thought by many to be only a " sport" from the well-known monthly crimson rose A gripping but is a quicker, more vigorous grower, and is hence more valuable as a climber or pillar rose. It was raised by James Sprunt, of Keenansville, N. C, the same horticulturist who originated the famous yellow tea rose "Isabella Sprunt."

New climbing monthly rose "James Sprunt," the name, though not pronounced in French, Greek or Latin, will be new to thousands. Originating in the sunny South, its character and habits are so intensely national, that we find relief in turning from the long list of foreign roses to chronicle a native climber that will domesticate itself for pillar climbing in the greenhouse or for sheltered winter-protected situations outdoors. It would be wise for those desirous of improving on their climbing roses, to select these of a domestic origin, in preference to those that bear a long foreign name, so puzzling to our discerning facilities, and in many cases inferior in qualities.

This climbing monthly rose was received by us in the fall of 1873, and was labeled tender north of Baltimore, excellent for greenhouse pillar climbing." Be its excellencies for climbing pillars under glass as it may, we beg permission to inform the public generally, that after a fair and impartial trial outdoors last winter, we pronounce emphatically, a verdict, not entirely tender.

We planted rose J. Sprunt in a sheltered place outdoors, and thatched it with straw. A thermometer was inclosed with the rose and hung on one of the lateral branches, so that we could accurately judge of its powers. In cold and changeable weather we compared the enclosed temperature with another in the open air, and discovered that the temperature of the rose did not vary by eight to eleven degrees in comparison to one exposed to the weather.

One cold night the temperature of this rare climber fell fourteen degrees below freezing, such as caused some anxiety to think serious of its welfare. But the plant was healthy, the surroundings dry, and being protected from the piercing winds, it was not injured the least. About the latter part of February, the leaf - buds commenced to swell, a portion of the thatch was removed in mild days, and the sun and air permitted to aid the expanding leaves. Six weeks later, the flower-buds began to form, and were fully opened the last week in April, one month ahead of the hardy kinds bedded in the open ground.

This plant assumes a climbing attitude while yet small; main branch strong and erect, with lateral branches of an upright tendency. Blooming regularly every month with a profusion that could not be appreciated except by those who have witnessed the abundance of its dark crimsoned blossoms. Judging from its rapid growth during the last four months, I am disposed to think that it will attain twelve feet of new wood this season. Buds, very attractive, tea fragrance of a rich, dark, deep crimson color, and quite durable. A Western Horticulturist.
