All roses are beautiful but rose white O’Hara has the full package – beauty, fragrance, and long vase live. It buds a mix of raspberry-cream and green that fades to the palest white with a hint of blush in the centre as it begins to unfurl, fading further as it opens into a frilly white ruff of a rose.
