Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"This vigorous shrub rose or mannerly climber produces wonderfully fragrant white clusters of flowers from spring through fall, making it a must for any garden The clusters appear as if produced by an artist, in perfect symmetry, color and scent. Imbricated petals unfurl and appear like feathers cloaking a dove’s neck."
