Hybrid Bracteata, Miniature.
White and yellow. Mild fragrance. 17 to 25 petals. Average diameter 1.5". Medium, double (17-25 petals), in small clusters bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
Medium, bushy, thornless (or almost). Medium, semi-glossy, medium green foliage.

USDA zone 6b through 9b (default). Can be used for container rose, cut flower, garden or specimen. Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom. Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
This rose is one from Ralph Moore's Crown Jewel Series bred from R. bracteata and registered as a Hybrid Bracteata.
This very very compact, low-growing plant would be suitable for a container on a patio. It tolerates alkaline soils surprisingly well, retaining the extremely dark green color of the foliage. JMJ
