According Rosen Tantau:

A vigorous, bushy variety with small clusters, 3-5 flowers, of creamy-white, full flowers. Flowers are retained for a long time and the dense, dark green, glossy foliage creates an excellent contrast to the flower. The bushy habit provides a good cover and makes Alabaster ideal for small and large groups.

Moderate susceptible to black spot, mildew and rust.
