Another one I've added this summer- here are my observations.

A white rose for people who hate white roses is probably a good way to think about this variety- it's not tacky, ice-white but a muted, solid creme flushed here and there with ice pink.

I've had many roses over the years and I count this as one of the most exquisite. The cupping prior to the flowers opening is beautiful, the fragrance spectacular but the deep rose-colored, fluffy and numerous stamens really steal my heart.

Cut blossoms don't last long in a vase but the scent is apparent from 2' away. I have not noticed any pink on her early blooms, as some have photographed. Her color is not a stark white but softer and nearly pure. If you like simple elegance, she's a true corker!

One of my all time favorite roses, an exquisitely simple single with prominent stamens.

I grew this in the UK and would love to find it again.
