Australian Rose Annual (1936)  Page(s) xii.  
 
Law, Somner Pty. Ltd. advertisement.

I will close this long report with Dickson's Centennial, selected by them to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of Rose growing by the House of Dickson. The great flowers are deep, blackish crimson, formed like a Jap Paeony, and showing a fine mass of golden stamens. It has real old-time fragrance. The plants are barely average. I like it because it is different.

Mme. Louis Lens (Lens) is masquerading in this country as "White Briarcliff," a small greenish white flower of nice form. Fine for cutting. Plants are only medium.

Going further north in Europe, we get Hinrich Gaede from Kordes, which really stopped the crowds. The colour to me is a kind of burnt orange, with an illumination which makes one blink; a strong grower, but black-spotted badly.

Another from Mallerin I liked was Roubaix. A peach-coloured flower, 5 inches across, with 75 petals. It opens like old Louise Catherine Breslau. The plants were low-growing.

Lautaret (Mallerin), with immense flowers of 52 to 6 inches, and 40 to 45 petals of satiny shell pink, is one of the loveliest Roses I have seen for some time, and it is fragrant. The plants are quite good.

Probably his [Sauvageot] best thing so far is a Polyantha, Margy, with 4 inch scarlet flowers of 20 petals, which are really lasting in colour. Good plants, 24 inches high here.

Rochefort (Mallerin) has interesting very double flowers of old rose. Medium plants, fairly free. A different Rose.

Louis Walter (Mallerin) had large flowers of bronzy orange pink, 25 to 30 petals, fruit fragrance; plants only fair. I doubt its value.

Another from him, [Mallerin] dazzling in its brilliancy when first opening, but fading in a few hours, was Brasier, glorious orange-scarlet, but bluish pink before noon. Possibly in a moist climate these Roses would be fine, but I have't time to bother with them.
