Sweet-scented Tea Rose








(ROSA SAFRANO.) Charming.

The petals of this rose require to be cut in thick white wax, coloured
three parts down with my lemon powder; shade lightly over this, but not
quite to the edge, with a little of my second yellow, and finish off by
a light tint of crimson (crimson lake in cake.) The petals are deep and
few, and require a great deal of cupping; to assist in producing this
rotundity of petal use the head of the ivory pin, commencing to roll
from the bottom to about half-way up the petal. Make a foundation of
white wax, rather large and cone-shaped; colour it the same as petals;
place the latter on singly, and press them forward to meet at the point
and conceal the foundation. They are placed on five in a row, and the
last two turned back: the seed cup is rather small; the calyx, and the
back petals are all deeply coloured with crimson. The stem is also very
red.
