== Tea Roses
Tea [[roses]] really are perpetual blooming; they have exquisite colors and thick, leathery petals; besides this, their buds are pointed, but they are very tender. In other words, they are killed very easily by the frost. All of the readers who have grown Roses at all know this and remark: "Even so, we will continue to try and Winter them, for it is surely worth faillng with some if only a few will grow."
The snow-white Maman Cochet is large, fragrant
and productive; the color becomes a trifle pink in the Fall. The buds of Lady Hilling-
don, deep apricot-yellow in color, are certainly irresistible for cutting to bring indoors. Marie Van Houtte, whose color can be described
either as a pink shaded cream white or vice versa, is also charming. Papa Gontier is an extra fine rich rosy red.
