Tess Allen.  Alba Roses. 
Friends of ours, the Whitfields live in one of the oldest inhabited small houses in Suffolk;  part of the house dates back to Henry VII.  In the forecourt there is a very old suckering shrub of Rosa alba maxima, and no one knows how many upheavals in the history of the house the rose has survived.  In summer the forecourt is brightened with the shrub's florescence of creamy-white roses;  when the double blooms first open the centres are flushed with pink.  The shrub is considered to be a double mutant of Rosa alba semi-plena;  it grows to a greater height than the sport and with half the number of petals a coronet of golden stamens is displayed in the centre of the flower.  R. alba semi-plena is also known as the 'White Rose of York' and in my opinion it is far more strongly scented than R. alba maxima.

Varieties in cultivation: Great Double White (Alba maxima). Large, 3½ in., very double, flat, faint buff tinge on opening, turning quite white after. Pedicel glanded, hip smooth. Calyx longer, not prominently winged. Leaves large, glaucous green, petiole downy. Wood green, few large hooked thorns. Makes a large bush and an admirable climber. This is the Alba flore pleno of the herbalists; Gerard, Blackwell, Ray and Miss Laurence's T. 25. Often referred to as Anglica alba. It is, in my view, the painter's Rose of the Renaissance.

ROSA alba, Var. flore pleno.
White Rose, double-flowered Variety.

SPECIFIC CHARACTER. Rose with smooth egg-shaped seed-buds and hispid peduncles; flowers white, with numerous petals; leaflets ovate and pointed, with serrrated margins; stem between erect and spreading, nearly smooth on the upper part, and furnished with strong spines towards the base.

Our figure of the White Rose exhibits an appearance of novelty, as one of the flowers represents a tie or knot in the middle, and which we have never before seen in the double white rose, the petals of which are numerous, but loose, with a few straggling stamens in the centre. Of these variations in the flowers there were many instances in the plant from which our drawing was made in the nursery of Messrs. Whitley and Brames in 1810.
