Wide spreading shrub rose. Glossy green foliage. Single white flowers 3 inches wide (petal count 5) with slight fragrance. Blossoms are held in very large clusters. A continuous bloomer though the season.


Full sun, well-drained soil. Prune by the renewal method removing about one-third of the oldest canes in the spring to soil line as needed to keep the shrub open and new canes in production. Prune the stem back to a branch angle (a process called heading back) as needed to reduce width and height.


Very hardy. Blooms stay white and do not fade to pink before falling. Excellent as a hedge.
