Suaveolens may have existed since the roman times. The glowing white flowers as sweetly scented and nicely contrast agains the light green foliage. The blooms are lightly cupped and the reflexed inner petals nearly obscure the stamens. This rose is winter hardy, excellent for hedges, and shade tolerant. Propagated on hardy Rosa Multiflora rootstock. All roses have been grown and tended in our family-owned rose nursery.
