"Tea Roses: old Roses for Warm Climates" suggests that the rose known in Australia as 'Marie Lambert' is known as 'Ducher' in some parts of the US. The description and pictures of either on HMF closely match.

Ross Roses have 'Marie Lambert', listed as ''Snow Flake'' (in their complete web variety PDF, page 9). This was the name that Thomas for Roses used to sell it under.

Updated information:
A keeper. May get more. Bush naturally takes a good shape, with ample and healthy foliage that it hangs onto no matter what. Flowers are fairly small, but gorgeous and deliciously scented, and are produced in good quantities.

If you want a white rose that will make a good garden shrub without requiring any fussing over it, this one is well worth considering. Also ok as a cut flower. Will last a few days.

The HMF description page's "Moderate fragrance" really doesn't do this one justice. I just had the chance to sniff mine for the first time. Chapman et al come close to nailing it. They say "Strong fragrance, complex, combining lemon, rosewater, passionfruit and almond".

My nose is a bit stuffy at the moment so I'll have to do more sniffing later, but basically Marie Lambert smells like an absolutely scrumptious mixture of Things That Aren't Roses. There's no hint of damask, or Tea, as far as I can tell at the moment. It's not sugary or musky or woody. It's just different, and very very good.
