Comments Classified a damask rose, Madame Zoetmans displays some similiarities to gallica or centifolia roses in the cupped form of its young white fragrant flowers. The flowers are contrasted nicely by an ample supply of dark green healthy foliage. There's a good spring flush of bloom with an occasional blossom later in the season. This is not a rose for cutting or exhibition, but it is a lovely garden rose of easy care.
