My thoughts on this particular rose began way back when I worked in the Nursery Trade, as I was a consultant in this field...Micro-marketing, you might say! Selling this plant was a joy. It allowed me to share with the customers this magnificent beauty. A creamy-pinky-white fluffy blossomy climber of incredible height, literally pours over my arbors, pergolas and trellising, brings with her an old Tea fragrance, which can be enjoyed throughout my garden!

I can't say enough good things about this garden specimen, a Noisette, developed sometime in the mid 1800s! Currently, there are five of her scattered across my yard. Her blooming pattern is non-stop and I must say, I have had the joy of picking her blossoms on Christmas Day!

I think, she today, is still the best white climber a gardener can grow today...After all, she was the first rose planted at Sissinghurst, by Vita-Sackville West, and her husband, Harold, in the UK and I had the joy of visiting her, a few years back.....the Rose, that is!
