Comments The white blossoms are pleated, about 2 1/2 inches across, and have a neat button eye. In bud, subtle red markings accent the rose tips and occasionally endure until the flower opens. Fragrance is storng and as is true of Autumn Damask to which it is likely related, it blossoms spring and fall on a compact, rounded bush. Foliage is plentiful and has a bit of blue-gray which helps set the flowers alight. This is by no means a little flower machine, but it is a nice, trouble-free garden shrub.
