Comments This rose manufactures creamy white flowers from spring to fall. And they are fragrant. This is not one of the Pemberton roses we think of first, since it is eclipsed by Penelope. It is, nevertheless, a superb rose, growing to head height, well branched and well provisioned with rich green foliage. Its flowers may be a little smaller than Penelope's but they are very neat and charming. In fact the whole plant has a kind of charm that makes you want to design a whole mixed border around it. Because it is so foliferous it will want especially attentive care, including feeding in the middle of the season. There is a pink sport introduced by Bentall called Pink Prosperity whose pale pink flowers fade quickly to white.
