My Paul's lemon pillar is a beautifull white ivory centred blooms which averages around ten medium sized 3" blooms in thousands of clusters.After 20 yrs with out prunning it would cover an area of ten square metres and is some 6-8' tall.As it gets older, its repeats get better.Last yr for the first time it didn't flower. This was due to late frosts claiming all the young shoots and buds in late October. I never water it as it is near a septic overflow and it has rooted down in numerous places.

This rose is borderline hardy in Z5. If stems don't die to the ground, old wood will produce large clusters or single stem large white blooms with the lemony scent. Slight susceptibility to mildew but that's it. This has been one of my favourite white roses of all time. The size, profusion and quality of flower is astounding and only experiencing them for a month a year makes them even more special.

  I have had a 10 foot plant of Pauls Lemon Pillar for 10 years in Shoreline (outside of Seattle) and it has survived many sub freezing winters. The biggest problem I have is that PLP usually blooms just as we get a spate of cool wet weather and the buds rot berfore they can fully open. When it does bloom the flowers are a luscious creamy white that seem to glow from within with a pearly yellow light. I admit that in a warmer, drier climate this rose would be a world beater.
