I have tried growing white roses for years with only the most minimal success. I found this fantastic rose and thought why not give it a shot. I am over the moon with the results. It is now about 4ft. tall and has produced the most spectacular white roses in 4 separate flushes now here in Ohio zone 5-6. Each flush has had at least 8 and as many as 14 huge blooms. I love the light fragrance and the dark green foliage. I have only had it planted for 1 1/2 years here in my condo garden and it put out blooms the first summer. Wonderful :)

Nifty white Hybrid Tea, but almost scentless. Nevertheless, it produced three sets of bloom for us here in Maine. Not cold hardy and needs protection.

Not very vigourous. Did not bloom all that well. Eventually we took it out.

I moved into my home 3 years ago. One of the many nice features of the yard is a huge Pascali tree rose, approximately ten feet tall and six feet around. It's really lovely, with hundreds of pinkish-white flowers that leave a carpet of petals on the grass underneath.

For many years the rose recieved only minimal care from the elderly owner and a helpful neighbor, but it seems to be doing just fine. I'm no rose expert, so I've only done mild yearly prunings and reenforced the metal and wood support that the previous owner devised. I was worried that our recent harsh winters might cause some damage, but it's as prolific this year as it ever was.

The previous owners saved the original tag from this plant showing the date when it was planted: May 12, 1973. That m... read more

A beautiful white rose with a blush of yellow in the center as it is opening. Disease resistant.
