The 'Snow Bush', R. dupontii... Dupont, Director of the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris during the Napoleonic Wars... a climber... a cross between the rampant 'Musk Rose' and the low-growing R. gallica. From its French parent, it inherits its coarse, rough leaves -- which are wider than those of R. moschata and its bristly and prickly stems. Its climbing habit and the large,single, white flowers, faintly edged with pink, come from the other side of the family ... colourful autumn hips... suckers freely on its own roots... summer-flowering.

In our Nurseries there are no more attractive objects than the Irish single varieties, and they are so marvellously free flowering that it is impossible to say too much in their praise. During the entire growing season they are virtually always in bloom, and their lasting properties are most surprising.
Moschata Alba... Mill, vigorous. White, slightly tinged with pink; superb.
