Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Nancy Steen gave a good description of this rose as "creamy-white, with loosely nodding blooms and dark mahogany coloured foliage. This gem.... possibly rivalled in beauty the roses grown by Greek gardeners at Paestum, in the days of Neros might." We can add that this rose has a sweet scent, is a vigorous grower and of all the Teas, is the most true white."
