Comments At the moment the buds open, the popcorn-shaped roses look nicely buttered. Then, as they age just a bit they fade to white. Extremely prolific, Gourmet Popcorn can just about cover itself with white flowers. It grows vigorously even in poor soil. It repeats well. And it is untroubled by disease. It's only flaw is that it doesn't actually smell like hot buttered popcorn.
