Comments Large, fragrant, creamy white flowers borne in great cluster cover the plant in early summer. Large yellow stamens add interest to the flower's center. And all this is set against dark green, glossy foliage. In mild climates the plant's glossy foliage decorates the garden year 'round.

BTW: According to Botanica's Roses, this is one of the very few roses to which the British rose hybridizer Jack Harkness awarded two stars. We speculate that this might have had more to do with its possibilities as breeding stock than as a garden rose because Jersey Beauty has been used as a parent to a number of notable varieties including Belinda's Dream and Emily Gray.
