Romantic white rose keeps petals

3 months ago

I have a white garden with boxwoods. My dream rose for the garden would be a romantic shrub like David Austin Desdemona but has the coloring of Claire Austin but holds it bloom for longer than the short amount of time that those Austins do. I'm noticing my Desdemona can tolerate some shade so that would be nice too. I may just end up with more Desdemona's but that Claire Austin touch of cool yellow is beautiful although she drops her petals as soon as you bat an eye. A romantic white rose that can tolerate a bit of shade but it not upright like a hybrid tea. I've been kinda wondering about good ole iceburg although I have never grown this rose.
