As a comment about Rose (Rosa 'Ducher'), Calif_Sue wrote:

Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Regarded as the only white China rose, ‘Ducher’ blooms a soft ivory-white for us. The buds are very round and sometimes have a hint of pink on the outer petals opening to a delicate swirl of fragrant ivory petals. Smaller than many Chinas, this is a good candidate for a container. Although it exhibits the typical bronzy new growth, the foliage of ‘Ducher’ is uncharacteristically light green."

In my garden here in Texas near the Gulf, Ducher grows quite large. I can't imagine it in a container. The foliage is an unusual yellow-green and the blooms are more cream than white. I have never noticed any pink. It is a very vigorous rose and a reliable bloomer. It would still be blooming this February except a cold, freezing rain caused the buds to ball.

Okay. I put them after your comment as I thought they sort of modified it.
