Abstract

In a previous paper it was shown that the rose Mme. Caroline Testout was a superior parent in rose breeding as judged by the large number of outstanding progeny which it had produced, either as sports or when Mme. Caroline Testout or its descendants were used as pollen or seed parents. A study of the progeny of Mme. Caroline Testout reveals the fact that two of its seedlings are also outstanding in plant characteristics and as producers of superior rose varieties. These roses are the Frau Karl Druschki, one of the most reliable and beautiful white roses listed as hybrid perpetual, and Mme. Edouard Herriot, a hybrid tea whose attractive flowers are described .as coral-red shaded yellow and bright rosy scarlet.
