Comments Nevada is a hybrid moyesii rose that makes large, single or semidouble white flowers all along long canes that arch out for about five of six feet from the base of the plant. The display can be quite generous. Uncharacteristically of moyesii hybrids, this rose repeats. David Austin suggests that the mechanism is that it blooms on new wood canes which a well established plant seems to make a good supply of through the season. It's a big plant that makes a big impact - all the more so because it can sucker quite freely and march across the yard.
