Old Hybrid Tea
"R. wichuraiana is a wide-spreading cluster-flowered climber/groundcover rose from
Japan and the Orient generally. The American Mr. Horvath began hybridizing with it
immediately upon its appearance in the West in the early 1890's, crossing it with
Polyanthas and Chinas. A person connected with the Barbier nurseries in France happened to
visit, became interested in the results, and got the similar and highly successful Barbier
crosses underway back home (though it is now thought that the closely-related R. luciae
was used by the Barbiers for a number of the crosses). Many, many very meritorious
ramblers from these and other breeders were introduced in the following years, some of the
greatest popularity: `Dorothy Perkins', `Evangeline', `May Queen', `Leontine Gervais',
