Rose names and dedications

Most of Clark's roses are named after and for women he knew, more often than not from landed families ("Cicely Lascelles", "Kitty Kininmonth"). Most women in his own family and all wives of Victorian Governors and Australian Governors-General had roses named for them. Lady Gowrie already had one, so hers had to be called "Zara Hore-Ruthven". Very few men received roses, all of them rose people in one way or another. Far more are devoted to racehorses: "Squatter"s Dream", "Tonner"s Fancy", "Flying Colours" and so on. Trailing the field are descriptive titles: "Sunny South", "Borderer" and "Daydream". "Scorcher" and "Billy Boiler" were slang for a hot day.

When Plutarch placed in noble array for the contemplation of ages to come his images of heroes and sages, or when Dr Johnson drew that gallery of poets, so many of whom only survive in his portraiture, the writers must have been conscious how little of the real men lay behind those strong or graceful representations, how much that was even faithfully recorded may convey a false impression, how much was inevitably omitted which might contradict every deduction and alter every estimate.

R. MONCTON MILNES, LORD HOUGHTON, Monographs, 1873.
