Comments There is no rose with more "favorite" votes at HelpMeFind Roses. And only a handful of roses get higher ratings among ARS members. If one is looking for a hardy, easy-care, vigorous rose it's almost impossible to do better. Whether two inch its flowers are white, pale pink, pale ivory, pale buff, or shell pink, they are plentiful, pretty, and fragrant. The plant endures punishing conditions without complaining. Its grayish foliage is borne on a very attractive, shrubby plant. One could wish for remontance, but it would only bring sorrow.
