Hello all,

Our database lists bloom color of both Wild Prairie Rose (Rosa arkansana) and Rose (Rosa acicularis) as Medium Pink. Maybe White needs to be added?

You are most welcome, Benny. Happy to be of help. Thank you for the thumb;s up and the acorn. Most kind of you.

Lin, I hesitated to post, but I did a whole bunch of reading and looking and found lots of pictures of both pink and white.

I will propose that the white form be added.
