Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral coriaceous On Aug 27, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

A great landscape rose that's also an excellent cutting rose. A prolific bloomer. Opens slowly and lasts a long time on the shrub or in the vase. Unusual among white roses in dropping its petals before they begin to turn brown.

Very blackspot resistant---this cultivar can be grown without fungicide here on the east coast of N. America without having it defoliate.

Plants in trade often show virus-like symptoms. If you want to grow this, I suggest you get a virus-indexed plant from a reliable source.

Iowa City, Iowa
