As hybrid tea rose plants go, this one is not exceptionally tall. But it is well branched and well foliaged. The foliage is generally healthy. It produces buff colored buds that open and fade quickly to white. It is the reflexed petals that make this rose exceptional. They are thin and very fragrant. It's easy to think of white roses as being blase, but this is an exception.

ARS members rate it 7.6.
