Rosa 'Anne Harkness'
'Anne Harkness' is a floribunda rose variety developed by Jack Harkness and introduced in 1979. It is an apricot rose, but with shadings of yellow at the base and in the center, is notable for flowering late in the year, producing clusters of 6 to 20 flowers up to 7 cm in size; the double, medium-sized flowers are only lightly scented, but are well suited for cut flowers. The rosebushes have an upright form, dense middle green foliage; the parentage of'Anne Harkness' is somewhat complicated:'Bobby Dazzler' × The cultivar was named'Anne Harkness' to mark the 21st birthday of the breeder's niece, Peter Harkness' daughter Anne.

Hybrid tea rose
Hybrid tea is an informal horticultural classification for a group of garden roses. They were created by cross-breeding two types of roses by hybridising hybrid perpetuals with tea roses, it is the oldest group classified. Hybrid teas exhibit traits midway between both parents, being hardier than the quite tender teas, more inclined to repeat-flowering than the somewhat misleadingly-named hybrid perpetuals. Hybrid tea flowers are well-formed with large, high-centred buds, supported by long and upright stems; each flower can grow to 8–12.5 cm wide. Hybrid teas are the world's most popular type of rose by choice due to their flower form, their flowers are borne singly at the end of long stems which makes them popular as cut flowers. Most hybrid tea bushes tend to be somewhat upright in habit, reach between 0.75 and 2.0 metres in height, depending on the cultivar, growing conditions and pruning regime. It is the provincial flower of Islamabad capital territory; the birth of the world's first hybrid tea is accepted to have been'La France' in 1867.
It was raised by a French nurseryman. He did it by hybridising a tea rose, supposedly'Madame Bravy', with a hybrid perpetual, supposedly'Madame Victor Verdier', hence "hybrid tea". Other early cultivars were'Lady Mary Fitzwilliam','Souvenir of Wootton' and'Mme. Caroline Testout', introduced by Pernet-Ducher in 1890. Hybrid tea roses did not become popular until the beginning of the 20th century, when Pernet-Ducher in Lyons, bred the cultivar'Soleil d'Or', but the cultivar that made hybrid teas the most popular class of garden rose of the 20th century was the rose Peace, introduced by Francis Meilland at the end of World War II, one of the most popular rose cultivars of the 20th century. Michele Meilland Richardier cultivated a hybrid tea which had double flowers, with a coral inside and a yellow and pink outside, it was said to last well when cut. The rose was classified as being part of the meilimona variety; the patent was filed on October 14, 1975 and was issued February 1, 1977. Most hybrid tea cultivars are not hardy in continental areas with cold winters.
This, combined with their tendency to be stiffly upright, sparsely foliaged and not resistant to diseases, has led to a decline in hybrid tea popularity among gardeners and landscapers in favor of lower-maintenance "landscape" roses. The hybrid tea remains the standard rose of the floral industry, is still favored in small gardens in formal situations; this is done by budding, a technique that involves grafting buds from a parent plant onto growing rootstocks. One such rootstock is R. multiflora. Hybrid tea cultivars bred in continental areas tend to be hardier than those hailing from more maritime regions. A large number of hybrid tea cultivars have been introduced by breeders over the years. Media related to Hybrid tea rose at Wikimedia Commons
Rosa 'Cécile Brünner'
Rosa'Cécile Brünner' known as'Mlle Cécile Brünner','Sweetheart Rose','Malteser Rose', or'Mignon', is a light pink polyantha rose bred in France by Marie Ducher and introduced by her son-in-law, Joseph Pernet-Ducher in 1881. Its parents were a double-flowered R. multiflora and a hybrid tea rose, either'Souvenir d'un Ami' or a seedling of'Mme de Tartas'. It is not clear if the rose was named after the sister or daughter of Ulrich Brunner fils.'Cécile Brünner' has small double flowers, developing from high-centered buds to form pom-poms with a diameter of 2 to 6.5 cm. Their pink colour fades from the outside with age, resulting in pale pink edges with yellow undertones and a deeper pink center; the flowers are moderately scented. The shrub is short but vigorous, with few prickles, mid green leaves, a height of 60 to 120 cm at an average width of 60 cm.'Cécile Brünner' tolerates shade and poorer soils, is disease resistant and winter hardy up to −26 °C.'Cécile Brünner' can be grown as a garden plant or in pots and greenhouses and is available in commerce.
Several sports of'Cécile Brünner' were introduced, including climbing forms, a dwarf white-flowered form, deeper pink variants. The climbing sports grow 6 m tall and 3 m wide, but can reach a height of up to 10 m, their flowers resemble those of'Cécile Brünner', appear in a single flush in early summer with a few scattered blooms. The climber can develop some globose, orange hips, it was confirmed by DNA analyses that'Spray Cécile Brünner' is identical with the plants now grown under the name of the cultivar'Bloomfield Abundance' and is a sport of'Cécile Brünner', not related to the original'Bloomfield Abundance', a hybrid seedling of'Sylvia' and'Dorothy Page-Roberts'.'Cécile Brünner' was inducted into the Old Rose Hall of Fame in 1988. Its sport'Climbing Cécile Brünner' gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit in 1993, the original form followed in 1994. Rosa'Perle d'Or' called'Yellow Cécile Brünner'
A shrub or bush is a small- to medium-sized woody plant. Unlike herbaceous plants, shrubs have persistent woody, they are distinguished from trees by their multiple stems and shorter height, are under 6 m tall. Plants of many species may grow either depending on their growing conditions. Small, low shrubs less than 2 m tall, such as lavender and most small garden varieties of rose, are termed "subshrubs". An area of cultivated shrubs in a park or a garden is known as a shrubbery; when clipped as topiary, suitable species or varieties of shrubs develop dense foliage and many small leafy branches growing close together. Many shrubs respond well to renewal pruning, in which hard cutting back to a "stool" results in long new stems known as "canes". Other shrubs respond better to selective pruning to reveal their character. Shrubs in common garden practice are considered broad-leaved plants, though some smaller conifers such as mountain pine and common juniper are shrubby in structure. Species that grow into a shrubby habit may be either evergreen.
In botany and ecology, a shrub is more used to describe the particular physical structural or plant life-form of woody plants which are less than 8 metres high and have many stems arising at or near the base. For example, a descriptive system adopted in Australia is based on structural characteristics based on life-form, plus the height and amount of foliage cover of the tallest layer or dominant species. For shrubs 2–8 metres high the following structural forms are categorized: dense foliage cover — closed-shrub mid-dense foliage cover — open-shrub sparse foliage cover — tall shrubland sparse foliage cover — tall open shrublandFor shrubs less than 2 metres high the following structural forms are categorized: dense foliage cover — closed-heath or closed low shrubland— mid-dense foliage cover — open-heath or mid-dense low shrubland— sparse foliage cover — low shrubland sparse foliage cover — low open shrubland Those marked with * can develop into tree form

V for Vendetta (film)
V for Vendetta is a 2005 dystopian political thriller film directed by James McTeigue and written by The Wachowskis, based on the 1988 DC/Vertigo Comics limited series of the same name by Alan Moore and David Lloyd. The film is set in an alternative future where a Nordic supremacist and neo-fascist regime has subjugated the United Kingdom. Hugo Weaving portrays V, an anarchist freedom fighter who attempts to ignite a revolution through elaborate terrorist acts, Natalie Portman plays Evey, a young, working-class woman caught up in V's mission, while Stephen Rea portrays the detective leading a desperate quest to stop V; the film was scheduled for release by Warner Bros. on Friday, November 4, 2005, but was delayed. Alan Moore, having been dissatisfied with the film adaptations of his other works From Hell and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, declined to watch the film and asked not to be credited or paid royalties. V for Vendetta has been seen by many political groups as an allegory of oppression by government.
David Lloyd stated: "The Guy Fawkes mask has now become a common brand and a convenient placard to use in protest against tyranny – and I'm happy with people using it, it seems quite unique, an icon of popular culture being used this way." In 2032, the world is in turmoil, with the United States fractured as a result of prolonged second civil war and a pandemic of the "St. Mary's Virus" that ravaged the UK and Europe 14 years earlier; the United Kingdom is ruled as a neo-fascist police state by the Norsefire Party, under the all-powerful High Chancellor Adam Sutler. On November 4, a vigilante in a Guy Fawkes mask identifying himself as "V" rescues Evey Hammond, an employee of the state-run British Television Network, from members of the "Fingermen" secret police while she is out past curfew. From a rooftop, they watch his demolition of London's main criminal court, the Old Bailey, accompanied by fireworks and the "1812 Overture". Inspector Finch of Scotland Yard is asked to investigate V's activities.
Meanwhile, the BTN declares the Bailey’s destruction an "emergency demolition", but V interrupts the broadcast to claim responsibility, encouraging the people of Britain to rise up against their government and meet him on next year's Guy Fawkes Night outside the Houses of Parliament. During the broadcast, the police attempt to capture V. Evey helps him escape, but is knocked unconscious. V takes Evey to his home. V kills Lewis Prothero, Norsefire's chief propagandist, Anthony Lilliman, the Bishop of London. Evey offers to help, uses the opportunity to escape to the home of her boss and talk show host Gordon Deitrich. In return for Evey trusting him with her safety, Gordon reveals prohibited materials, including subversive paintings, an antique Quran, homoerotic photographs. Meanwhile, V confronts Dr. Delia Surridge, who had experimented on him and many other "undesirables" at Larkhill concentration camp. After Gordon performs a satire of the government on his show, his home is raided that night and Evey is captured.
She is imprisoned and tortured for information about V, with her only solace being a note written by actress Valerie Page, a former prisoner, tortured and killed for being lesbian. Evey is told; when she says she would rather die, she is inexplicably released, finds herself in V's home. It turns out that V was the one who had "captured" her at Gordon's home, staged her imprisonment and torture to free her from her fears; the note was real when he was imprisoned. He informs her that Gordon had been executed when the Quran was found in his home. While Evey hates V for what he did to her, she realises she has become a stronger person, she leaves him, promising to return before November 5. Reading the deceased Surridge's journal, Finch learns V is the result of human experimentation and has been targeting the people who detained him. Despite being stonewalled by the government, Finch searches for the true identity of V, tracing him to a bioweapons program in Larkhill. Finch meets William Rookwood, who tells him about its origins.
14 years before the events of the movie the United States was involved in deadly war in the Middle East which grew worse. Because of this, Secretary of Defense at the time, used the war to launch a secret project in the name of national security at Larkhill which resulted in the creation of the St Mary's virus, he further reveals that Creedy, the current leader of the Norsefire Party, suggested the release of the virus onto the UK. Targeting St Mary's School, a tube station and a water treatment plant, the virus killed more than 100,000 British residents, the outbreak was blamed on a terrorist organisation due to the war; the Party, which promised security in times of social instability, used the wave of fear and chaos to win the election that year, elevate Sutler to the newly created office of High Chancellor and win an overwhelming majority in Parliament, becoming the elected government and taking absolute and total control over the country. Finch discovers that Rookwood was V in disguise, though he disbelieves the story, his faith in the Norsefire government is shaken.
As November 5 nears, V distributes thousands of Guy Fawkes masks, the population questions government rule. The UK descends into anarchy, ignited when one of the Fingermen makes the mistake of shooting and killing a young girl committing vandalism, only to be k
An ADR rose is a winner in the German ADR rose trial. No chemical pesticides have been allowed since 1997 and breeders describe the trial as among the most challenging in the world; the trial is set up by a working group that includes the Bund deutscher Baumschulen, rose breeders, eleven independent trial stations in Germany. The trial results are analyzed by the Bundessortenamt. Roses are tested over three years and criteria analyzed include disease resistance, hardiness and habit. About 50 cultivars are judged annually and more than 2000 cultivars have been tested since the award's creation in the 1950s. Roses that no longer fulfill quality standards have their certificate removed; as of November 2013, 161 cultivars are recognized.
