Early Large Flowered, Group 2.
White. Strong fragrance. Average diameter 5". Double, curved tip bloom form.
Height of 6' to 8' (185 to 245 cm).
USDA zone 4b through 9b. Plant in sun or partial shade. This plant blooms twice. It blooms on the previous year's growth, so resist the urge to prune it in early spring. However, if you garden in a place with cold winters, Mother Nature will more than likely prune the plant for you. It will bloom a second time on new growth.
