I planted this rose in the wrong place. It's huge for only a 2 year old plant (6 ft. wide) and will soon be competing for space with other roses. It should be moved or the poor thing will be pruned too much. (I'm probably too lazy to move it though.) This year it's laying on the ground mostly, but I can hardly wait for it to start mounding so the flower clusters will drape down in that beautiful way they do in photos. More than one source says it's self-cleaning . Just a few clusters on mine have been. A few others shake off easily, but most have to be deadheaded or they stick to the plant. That was a big disappointment. However, this rose has enough going for it that I'll keep it for now. Like the fragrance. Often I don't smell anything, but sometimes it's there - slight, but wonderfully fresh and sweet. It's also a very healthy rose bush (no mildew or blackspot so far), and as others have said, flowers well throughout the season.

Is the lineage given accurate?

How did a once blooming species, R multiflora, and a seedling from R. wicherana, aslo once blooming, produce an offspring with perpetual bloom?

I like all the Medilland line, and alba is far and away the best of the lot, IMO. I would not want to be without it. I have only two roses, this and Darwin's Enigma, which are excellent performers with no extra care needed in hot, dry CA, and cold and wet NY.

The lineage is based on patent information given by Meilland. 'Marthe Carron' is listed as occasionally repeating, so it may not be a sport of R. wichurana as claimed. On the other hand, Meilland may not have disclosed the full parentage.
