White, near white or white blend Polyantha.
Registration name: Snow Showers

Bred by William "Bill" Wilke (United States, 2001).
White or white blend.  None / no fragrance.  17 to 25 petals.  Average diameter 1".  Small, double (17-25 petals), in large clusters bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Medium, upright.  Medium, semi-glossy, medium green foliage.  
Height of 30" to 3' (75 to 90 cm).  
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for container rose, garden or landscape.  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.  
Breeder's notes:
Produces tremendous sprays of pure white blooms on long stems.
