White is very much a winter colour, but also one to cool the garden down during the long hot days of summer.
This month’s rose is one of the best while roses around which anyone can grow with ease.

As the name suggests, this roses really sparkles in the garden with masses of small white blooms all summer long, lasting well into autumn. Dark green foliage compliments the blooms well and is untroubled by disease making this a very easy to grow rose. It is stunning in a mass planting.
Bred by the rose breeding family of Poulsen in Denmark, it won a Certificate of Merit from the NZRS trials in Palmerston North in 1992 and has been popular with gardeners all over New Zealand.
