These very disease resistant white shrub roses, with their neat, compact shape are widely grown in containers, but also make excellent front of the border plants.
They are easily pruned to maintain their shape. Simply cut back
the main shoots to an out-ward facing bud in late winter, and you'll have a beautiful hedge of blooming roses all season.
