Average rating: EXCELLENT-.  
White, near white or white blend Hybrid Perpetual.
Bred by Alexander Dickson II (1857-1949) (United Kingdom, 1893).
Introduced in Australia by George Brunning - St. Kilda Nurseries in 1897 as 'Marchioness of Londonderry'.
Hybrid Perpetual.  
White or white blend.  Mild to strong fragrance.  50 petals.  Average diameter 8".  Large, full (26-40 petals), borne mostly solitary, in small clusters, globular, high-centered bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Dense, thornless (or almost), upright.  Light green foliage.  

Height: 5' to 8' (150 to 245cm).  
USDA zone 5b through 9b.  Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant.  
The pink rose now in commerce in the U.S. as Marchioness of Londonderry is probably not the ivory white HP that was originally sold under that name.
