This white to white-blend rose will get your attention with its delightful fragrance, exhibition/hybrid tea bloom form, and large open flowers. Borne singly and in clusters, the blooms are set off by glossy, dark green foliage, as the stars are set off by the night time sky. The plant is very vigorous, has an upright habit and blooms profusely. Excellent for the garden and cutting.
