Here are photos of my 'Prosperity' from Mrs. Sambell's garden, via Rose Marsh, in 2000 planted in the Wee Garden. It is not a very healthy bush and I think it might need more water and more dolomite.

You're not alone Patricia, five years ago I bought 'Penelope', 'Felicia', 'Cornelia' and 'Prosperity' from David Austin, three of them are growing wonderfully but the 'Prosperity' looks exactly like yours, it's very miffy.

Thanks for that Andrew. (I've edited my other 'Prosperity' comment)

It's interesting that some of the pictures of this rose show yellow shades and others, especially dee choi's photograph have pink tones instead. The plant I purchased from David Austin is pale lemon in bud during the summer opening white but in cooler autumn weather has a lovely soft yellow colour in the centres of the flowers. Definitely no pink anywhere, maybe warmer climates make a difference.

Prosperity is well named! it blooms so generously and last a long time without fading. Foliage is a great foil to the pure white blooms. A winner!

I agree. I got this rose as a 'filler' for a partially shady, rather awkward location. I didn't expect much of it but it has completely won me over for so many reasons: fragrant white blooms that just keep on coming (mine was still blooming in January!), healthy gorgeous foliage without a speck of disease, beautiful arched weeping form, quick growth, tolerance of shade and difficult soil/location. What a amazing rose - well named, indeed. I'm glad I took Liz Druitt's advice and tried this rose - it is definitely one of my favorites now.
