  3. Gorgeous all! Chris just because I know you must have one-square foot left to plant something else, consider this; I used to have a gorgeous white rose named Jardin de Bagatelle, holy moly was it fragrant and strong growing and a great repeat bloomer. Not pure white but a creamy blush white: http://www.magicgardenroses.com.au/proddetail.php?prod=jardins_de_bagatelle


  4. Oh, it’s just beautiful. And the creamy shadows at the heart of the blossom make me want to paint it.


  5. Just stunning! Francis Meilland looks like a must have for my garden for 2013. I love white roses…
