Comments White with a tinge of cream, these slightly cupped flowers are produced in vast sprays opening to reveal red-orange stamens. It is these prominent stamens that distinguish this rose from the crowd. Jacqueline du Pre is strongly suggestive of both elegance an innocent simplicity, making it easy to fall in love with. It's easy to stay that way, since it is a very tough and trouble-free rose that repeats well through the season. Certainly not a rose for bedding or cutting, it is an excellent rose for a mixed border or for the edge of a woodland.
