Now and then there is a flower with a faint violet perfume... liable to mildew...

Frau Karl Druschki (Reine des Neiges, hybrid perpetual, V. Lambert 1900) - The Snow Queen has become popular via her magnificent white blooms. She is a hybrid perpetual and not a hybrid tea, due to which she reblooms often only towards the end of summer after a strong first bloom in June. In southern regions she is often cultivated as a cut rose, as there is no other variety which has such pure white blooms. The rose bushes are so vigorous that sometimes they produce canes of two meters height within one year. It can happen in autumn that individual outer petals are shaded slightly pink. The blooms are unfortunately without fragrance.
