The Divine Miss M

NEW! The Divine Miss M™ is the name sake rose of the beloved and celebrated Bette Midler. This creamy white hybrid tea, bursting in beauty and elegance, was personally selected by Bette Midler herself. The large and full ruffled blooms, borne mostly solitary, exude a delicate and sweet rose scent. The Divine Miss M™ repeat blooms throughout the season and you can expect this rose to reach 3′ – 4′ in its maturity. All roses have been grown and tended in our family-owned rose nursery.

Jedmar, it was already listed as ‘Divine Miss M’, page number 83561. A merge needed?

For anyone who has this rose, can you tell me please if your rose is virtually thornless? not totally but just a few downward facing ones here and there, and small prickles on the back of the leaf stalks, because that's all mine seems to have, the uppermost canes are smooth, and I'm wondering if I have the correct rose, but otherwise the blooms and foliage seem to conform to what I see here.
I'm in England, and my rose does not appear to be William R. Smith with which it's sometimes confused apparently.

My rose has a light sweet fragrance, very upright in growth, quite vigorous, possible short climber - I shall have to move it - with creamy white, tinted yellow, sometimes pale pink edging but not much so far. Not many petals, not very full. My plant is first season..

A member here below in the U.S. states ''horrible thorns'' which is why I'm making this query. Thank you,

Marlorena, my Marie has what I would term a somewhat below average number of prickles, combined with an average size. One distinctive feature is that the prickles are a dark red. I’ll post a picture of those under the main rose category so you can see and compare to yours.

Lee, thanks so much, and very prompt response.. I've seen your picture.. where you have 5 o 6 I have just 1 or 2, but they are the same colour and shape... the rest of the bush looks to be the same foliage wise... my plant is only 4 feet tall so maybe with time I will see more thorns, but I've checked all the references and I can find nothing to say it's 'low thorn'.. which puzzled me..

I'm thinking now it's the correct rose and that it will conform to type as it develops... thanks again for your help..

You’re very welcome. I always have time to talk about old garden roses.

The Tea book says: prickles numerous.
They're visible on photo 104343.

I agree with MsMagsMn wholeheartedly - my Calypso grows in a pot on the patio, nothing bothers it, it always has blooms and many buds, it's just a joy to watch it grow.
