Comments When given excellent, warm, dry, and sunny conditions this rose can wow you with its creamy white blossoms - pale ivory fading to white. They frequently have spectacular form, and they are borne with good continuity. When one wants a whitish color, but white is simply too .... white, French Lace can be the perfect rose. Reports on fragrance vary. Some find it deliciously fragrant, others hardly so at all. In mediterranean climates it can knock your socks off. The slightest touch of drought or of hot, muggy air will kill it quickly.
