This  rose, Félicité Perpétue, is gloriously white. This is what Gardener’s World here says about it: ‘a lovely rambling rose with a vigorous growth habit and glossy, green foliage. In summer it bears masses of double, creamy pink flowers. Flowers are borne in trusses and have a delicate scent similar to primroses. Attractive orange-red hips appear in autumn. It is more tolerant of shade than other roses, and may even be grown against a north-facing wall.’ All this is true but it’s disadvantage is that it’s very dominant and although the flowers are delightful in June, some may not think it’s worth having something so, well, dominant for the rest of the year.
