Comments Suggestive of a large snow bank, the plant in full bloom is covered by roses with floppy China-like petals. The show occurs once per season. If it inherits the toughness of its named parent, it will be an excellent garden plant. Evidently it was a plant with such a good reputation that some have substituted other roses and sold them under this name. Applejack is ons such suspected imposter.
