Got this plant as a cast off from the local nursery. Planted at a dark corner at my community garden was stolen my a member and rescued. I took back home potted up, unhappy in a container for more then a yr. Refused to bloom for another yr. finally got put in the ground and I pruned it and used cutting for propagation and have extra plants now. Great white color healthy not doing a thing until it got settle in the ground. Bloom cycles in rotation with "Iceberg" I have a white rose bed that blooms continuously all season. Its more compact and better forms then Iceberg. Slight fragrance better scent in a hot day. Holds petals better and better cut flowers then Iceberg. Very healthy like Iceberg, no spots, no rust , no damage from the high wind. I'm glad I didn't give up on it.

This is a beautiful rose!! I have a Fortuniana rootstock and it is doing VERY WELL! It still does on occasion get a little bit of black spot, but then NOTHING is safe from it where I live! The humidity is out of control!

I get so many comments on the flowers this bush puts out and it almost always has a bloom! When I look outside my window at night, you can definitely see these very pretty CLEAR white roses!

Currently, I am INFESTED with spidermites... remarkably, this is one of the bushes that doesn't have it. What is crazy is; the two bushes next to it have them and this one doesn't. Possible resistance? Your guess is as good as mine!

UPDATE: Won the war against sipder mites (it wasn't easy by any means) and had a few rose casualties. :( This one however, never got them and is blooming like a champ!

Great rose that is very easy to take care of!

I was amazed by the prolific blooms on this rose. Handles the western sun in DFW area like it was a native plant. Wonderful creamy white compact flower.

I planted this rose last year, and was astounded by how gorgeous it was. GORGEOUS white rose, and moderately fragrant. Looks good against a dark backdrop - lights up the garden at night.
