71 Old Roses: Gallica Roses.

These are selections bred from the "French Rose," R. gallica. A Gallica
will typically have a stocky plant, an open blossom which shows the
stamens and is held upright, usually in colors varying on one side or
the other from rose-red. Variations, however, are almost limitless as
well as subtle, and all degrees of height and blossom may be found,
from near singles to full doubles, from blush pinks to maroon, from
clear homogeneous colors to cloudy, striped, and/or spotted blossoms.
The plants are easily propagated by their runners or suckers when on
their own roots. Some examples are 'D'Aguesseau', 'Camaieux',
`Tuscany', 'Versicolor'.
