Comments Heirloom Roses says it is "one of the most beautiful and fragrant of all white roses, regardlss of type." That says a lot. Typical of roses bred by Buck, it is shrubby and well clad with foliage. It is also cold hardy and resistant to mildew and rust. Add in nicely formed white flowers with nicely reflexed petals touched with a bit of ivory; and you have a solid contender at the show bench. Throw in fragrance and you have a real star.
