Abstract

The year 1893 is an important landmark to the rosarian as in that year Charles Turner of Slough, England, introduced the Crimson Rambler rose to the occidental world. Nothing is known of its parentage, it having been introduced from Japan where it had been grown for an unknown period of time. When it was first introduced it was called the "Engineer." Later, it was known as "Turner's Crimson Rambler." Still later the name Turner was dropped, making it the "Crimson Rambler" as we know it today. Without regard to name, this rose introduction has proven to be a prolific parent in the production of new varieties. Although the variety belongs to the multiflora group, and many of the descendants are found under that designation, yet its influence also is evident in Polyantha, Lambertiana, Hybrid Wichuraiana, Hybrid Polyantha, and other groups.
