United States (Zone 9a) wrote:

White, near white & white blend blooms. Mild fragrance. Occasional repeat later in the season.

Habit: Height of 6' to 8' (185 to 245 cm).

Shade tolerant, very disease resistant.

Positive hortensia On Jun 17, 2006, hortensia from Langley, BC, BC (Zone 8b) wrote:

Truly a rose for all places -- tolerant of shade, sun, lousy throwing basketballs. Wonderful sweet fragrance and the usual pretty ferny spinossima foliage. It isn't really perpetual, but does repeat bloom unlike the rest of its relations. VERY thorny, but the thorns aren't the great claws of modern roses, but slender prickles that still can hurt.
