Attributes-
This compact, bushy shrub rose (grandiflora) typically grows 3-4” tall and features large, fragrant, double cup-shaped, ivory white blooms produced in clusters of 3-10 from late spring to fall. Foliage is olive green.
Issues-
Roses are susceptible to a large number of disease problems, the most common of which are black spot, powdery mildew, rust and rose rosette. If good cultural practices do not control disease, then fungicides may become necessary. Insect problems include aphids, beetles, borers, scale, thrips, leafhoppers and mites. If natural predators fail to control insect populations adequately, then insecticides may become necessary.
Common Applications-
Shrub or mixed border or rose garden. Nice small specimen. Also effective as a hedge.
