A very special rose

This is such a special rose, beautiful form and it looks like it is made of silk. A spring purchase this year, planted in zone 7 in a south facing garden bed and it is as happy as can be...only a few months old and several fully formed roses already! No disease issues so far and a white rose is difficult to look "special" I have found in the past...but not this one!

Constant blooms!

I've had this rose for just a few months and it has bloomed non-stop! The blooms are small at this point since the plant is young but they are beautiful!

Makes me so happy
LOVE LOVE these roses

I live in North Texas and this is my first David Austin Rose, it was small last year but this year it has gone crazy with huge roses and lots of them. I can't stop taking photos of how beautiful they are and I bring them inside and put on my kitchen table. I am a painter and I can't wait to paint them on canvas. I live in Zone 8.

Just beautiful.

Re-potted from root stock once since purchasing in July. Continuous fluffy blooms and Zone 10b so I treat for black spot and has been aphid free unlike a few others. Lovely, easy to care for and blooms are gorgeous.

Wonderful scent but mind the thorns

Of the roses I've purchased from Heirloom Roses, this one seems to be the only one bothered by disease. It is placed on the same South-facing wall as my Evelyn rose but did get some mildew in 2017. The bush didn't seem to suffer much as it bloomed and bloomed and bloomed. I brought so many into the house to go on my table and dresser. The scent is amazing but mind the thorns when cutting the stems! They are wicked. It was planted in 2014 aside from the mildew has done really well here in central VA zone 7.
