The Soft Whisper Rose is a cream colored rose with pointed petals that are edged in pink.
The unique pointed petals on this Hybrid Tea rose resembles an old fashioned pinwheel.
'Soft Whisper' roses are great for cutting. They come on long 16-18" cutting stems, and have a powerful fruity sweet fragrance that will fill the entire room.
The ovoid, pointed buds turn to creamy white blooms that are classic high centered Hybrid Tea form flowers. The double blooms have 17-25 petals, and are around 4" across.

This Hybrid Tea rose is on the hardier side than some of the others. I will still caution those in zones 6 and colder that if you attempt to grow it, you should plant it deeper than normal, and give it winter protection.
"Soft Whisper' is a very delicate and romantic looking rose that is beautiful both in the garden and in the vase. The deep green foliage really make the elegant blooms stand out.
