Introduced in Denmark by Poulsen Roser A/S as 'Alabast'.
Early Large Flowered, Group 2.  
White.  6 to 8 petals.  Average diameter 6".  Single bloom form.  Late spring to early summer, late summer.  

Height: 8' to 10' (245 to 305cm).  
USDA zone 4b through 9b.  Tolerates partial shade.  This plant blooms twice.  It blooms on the previous year's growth, so resist the urge to prune it in early spring.  However, if you garden in a place with cold winters, Mother Nature will more than likely prune the plant for you.  It will bloom a second time on new growth.
