Comments Fair Bianca produces three inch white flowers packed with myrrh-scented petals. The flowers are intricately cupped and very fragrant. There is a sense, when one is viewing a blossom that it represents a kind of formal perfection - it's the same sense one gets when looking at a perfectly formed rose of Madame Hardy. Part of this sense arises from the sheer perfection of the bloom; but part of it may arise from the rarity of the flower. It is not always a prodigious bloomer. And it's a slow grower.
