White shrub. The gobular-ovoid buds of ivory-white open to double (30-40 petals), cupped, 3-3.5 inch blooms of ivory-white with a faint salmon pink blush which disappears with age. The blooms, borne in clusters of 3-1 0, have a pleasing, light fragrance. The abundant, leathery foliage is dark olive green and has good tolerance to disease. The thorns are tan and awl-like. The erect, bushy, 3-3.5 ft plant is compact and spreading and in continuous, abundant bloom from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
