Armstrong Better Roses Through Research Here at Armstrong Nurseries, we have long believed that better roses than existing kinds could be created by aiming high, by applying every latest development in the science of genetics, and by combining both with a lot of painstaking work. The success achieved in this program is proved by the overwhelming popularity of the Armstrong introductions described on the next five pages. f We are mighty proud of the fact that more Armstrong roses have been awarded All-America honors than have those of any other hybridizer in the world. / Charlotte Armstrong "Queen of Them All" Introduced in 1941, when it won the only All- America Award, Charlotte Armstrong has steadily climbed the ladder of fame, until now it stands unchallenged at the very top among the world's finest roses. If you are planting it for the first time, you will marvel (as we still do) at the beauty of the lovely, long, carmine-red buds, with their perfect streamlined form, and at the mag- nificent open blooms of rich cerise. The open flower is usually 3 or 4 inches in diameter, with about 30 petals, high-centered, remaining a beautiful rich color until the last petal drops. No printer's inks can illustrate the richness of its color. A plant of Charlotte Armstrong will become one of the largest in the rose garden for it is extremely vigorous, semi-spreading to upright, usually producing its slightly fragrant flowers singly and always on long stems. The foliage is leathery, semi-glossy, deep green, and highly resistant to mildew. The plant keeps producing long-stemmed beauties all season. Charlotte Armstrong is an all-climate rose, and we get thffij same enthusiastic reports of its behavior from growers in the North, South, East, and West. Originated in the Armstrong Re- search Dept. by W. E. Lammerts. Plant Pat. No. 455. $2.00 each; 3 or more, $1.75 each.
