Comments Best thought of as a landscape rose for coolish places, Schneezwerg (literally snow dwarf) is a short plant with smallish foliage and white flowers. It is capable of bearing these in great profusion. The plant is very cold hardy and disease resistant. There is not much repeat, but it does produce small scarlet hips.
