Comments Pink buds open to pale pink flowers which then fade to white. Since the flowers grow in great clusters, the effect is of a powdery white and pink ball. This is the rose that reputedly started the "micro miniature" craze; and it is still considered one of the better examples. It makes a lot of disease resistant lists, and can be expected to be a rose that does not need constant attention.
