Comments Antique Silk bears well-formed flowers in buff, ivory, cream, or white. It is a florist's rose, meaning it was not bred to be an especially good garden plant. It's strength is its thick, substantial, formal flowers. It's been a long time since this rose was introduced and it really doesn't get out much anymore. It's a little tender and its not terribly vigorous; but it is resistant to disease.
