Totally agree - I am eagerly waiting for this White Hybrid Tea to make it here to Europe too. It is getting good reviews. I will ask Hans van Tage in Holland, Rozenkwekerij de Bierkreek to see if he can get permission to import it from Jackson and Perkins. Very strange that a rose with this name has taken so long to get here :-) - Many Jackson and Perkins roses are rarer here in Europe than - elephants perfoming - Le Spectre de la Rose.

Niels, thank you for this information. Let´s stay in touch in case of any news you got.
I keep rose Annapurna in my garden, it may be simmilar to Pope. It´s fragrance is fantastic.

I am sure we can get a nursery to import it if - Jackson and Perkins will allow it to be sold in Europe. It is rare to see a white rose -so pure and white since most white roses get spots due to rain or even just from the humidity that dew gives. And most say it has a very good fragrance too :-) So let us hope we can get it here by budding time in July/August - and then we needs to wait a year for the plants.

Does anyone know if this has changed? I'm in the Netherlands and haven't found it online here or in Germany

Hi there, yes, this rose is few seasons already available in Europe. In Czech Republic it is sold by Starkl. They also have nurseries in Austria and other countries.

Oh, thank you very much! Perhaps HMF can add Papst Johannes Paul II to the names?

Bij mij groeit ie in de tuin. En in Vilebranch Bramble.
It's growing in my garden. And in V.B. too.

Oh, that's wonderful. What is Villebranch Bramble? (Google doesn't give anything) Do you by any chance remember where you bought it? The link above from HonzaPM is in Austria, with branches in Eastern Europe, but not delivering in the Netherlands.

What a Rock Star of a rose! It blooms and blooms and the flowers are long lasting, huge and sparkly with a beautiful swirly form. This rose has a strong lemony soap scent, not my favorite but even if it weren't fragrant I would still grow this rose. It is always low growing, VERY low thorns, bushy, and 99% disease free year to year. The only drawbacks to this rose is that the stems aren't always strong enough to hold the gigantic blooms but most of the time they are!

It is true that during certain times of the year (midsummer) the scent skirts the line between citrus and Windex window spray. I had seen someone else post this same comment somewhere but I cannot find their comment any more to tell them that they were not crazy. The smell is very good in spring and fall, however, and it's a beautiful, crazy bloomer all growing season.

"Pretty good" in health and vigor but just about "as good as it gets" in QUALITY. I think the scent and form is perfection+. In reply to an earlier post I do not smell "soap"..... at all! he he ha! But that does not mean that different people cannot pick up different scents I guess.
Reply #1 of 3 posted 29 DEC 16 by Jay-Jay
But alas, it balls badly in rainy weather.
Reply #2 of 3 posted 30 DEC 16 by davyjns
Yes.It does this because the petal count is high. Mine is in a pot on the deck so if the weather gets too bad I just slide it inside for a while.
Reply #3 of 3 posted 30 DEC 16 by Jay-Jay
No option for me, I have way too many pots to do that, besides the roses that are planted in the soil.
Btw: As for smelling soap (in the best sense of the word) try Sharifa Asma.
