Comments It's really difficult to explain exactly how it is that Moonlight charms; but it does. It forms a beautiful shrub. Its foliage is lush, lustrous, and gorgeous, and it covers itself nicely with very attractive, if simple white flowers. For those who buy roses by the specification; biggest, brightest, most roses, most fragrant, and so on, this is not the perfect rose. For those who want a lovely shrub that will light up their garden and require virtually no care, this might be the perfect rose. Train it on a four foot pillar.
