This disease-free Floribunda rose, is very resistant to Black spot, even in damp climates. They are perfect roses for damp English climates! The canes have lots of prickles (thorns), but they are are very healthy, and easy to grow roses.
The flowers repeat well all season, with sweetly scented, classically formed blooms. The medium to large creamy white flowers appear both singly, and in clusters of up to about 6, on a vigorous,upright bush.
The blooms remind me of a Hybrid Tea rose, but it blooms like that of a Floribunda rose.(a great combination)! Pretty Lady is intermediate between a Hybrid tea rose, and a Floribunda, and bear medium to large size flowers that appear both singly, and in clusters of up to six per cluster.
This one is a Highly Recommended Rose, that is healthy growing, vigorous, and an easy to grow rose.
This pretty rose was bred by an English amateur (Len Scrivens), who used a little known species to develop this disease free rose bush.
