The reports include 66 new roses not mentioned in prior issues. All comments are candid and reported in the words of the reporter. Supplementing the comments are photographs of 136 roses on which multiple comments were received. The reports are set forth alphabetically and include statistics of the current show results of the reported varieties. In addition, information is provided on known sources for the reviewed varieties.
