This hybrid shrub rose typically grows 2-3” tall and 4-6”
wide and is usually sold as a ground cover rose because it grows more
horizontally than vertically. Features single-petaled, loosely-cupped,
fragrant, pure white blooms (2’ wide) with yellow centers appearing
in May and repeating all summer. Foliage is dark green.
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.
Mass as a ground cover for a spectacular effect when in bloom. Also effective
for stabilizing embankments, banks or hills, or along curbsides.
