Baby Chateau, another Polyantha, burns before it opens. It might be all right in shade, but at present it is worthless.

Baby Chateau also has been most beautiful; at times the colour was second only to Guinee.

Baby Chateau. Good growth and foliage, flowering most freely. At times the colour has been all that could be desired, but in hot weather it burns badly, which is a great pity, as it spoils what would otherwise have been a magnificent bedding Rose.

Almost equally good is Baby Chateau (Kordes, 1936) an intensely dark scarlet crimson with vigorous, healthy foliage and growth. The colour is so intense it is liable to burn in very hot weather, but it will be largely grown for its other outstanding qualities.
