Easily the most photogenic rose in my garden. It's impossible to take a bad photo of it. The beautiful clusters of cupped blooms are reminiscent of bridal bouquets, elegant luncheon centerpieces, and the bouquets in romantic greeting cards and old paintings. It's a 21st-century rose with an 18th-century look.

The rose bush itself is also attractive. It's compact and symmetrically branched. It grows well on its own roots and will live happily in a large container if garden space is limited.

A girly-girl feminine rose with very full cupped blooms in white and pale pink. They look like old-fashioned cabbage roses. The plant has good disease resistance and the leaves are a healthy deep green. It's easy to root too. I had it in a pot when I first moved here and it had rooted through to the ground. When I pulled it away, breaking off the roots, I was surprised when I noticed new growth from that spot one day, and it quickly developed into a larger plant than the one in the pot!
