Miniature, Patio.  
White or white blend.  Flowers soft pink with darker accent; reverse ivory with pink accent.  Strong, fruity fragrance.  38 petals.  Average diameter 2.5".  Very large, full (26-40 petals), borne mostly solitary, high-centered bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  Long sepals, pointed, ovoid buds.  
Tall, upright.  Large, semi-glossy, medium green foliage.  
Height of 18" to 3' (45 to 90 cm).  
USDA zone 6b through 10b.  Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, cut flower or garden.  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.  
Justice Miniature Roses says this rose has soft pink to nearly white blooms on a tall upright plant that will fill the surrounding area with its strong scent...
