Positive coriaceous On Jun 27, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Excellent exhibition form, very full, white flower with light pink center (turning all white in the heat of summer), very fragrant. Good cut flower.

Very blackspot resistant. Vigorous. Hardy to Z5. Its landscape durability compares favorably with the Knockouts.

If you like hybrid tea roses, this is as good as they come.

2013 AARS winner. Winner of numerous European rose awards, including the ADR.

The cultivar name is 'MEItroni'. The others are trade names.
