(w Wells 2011)
Named after the President Emeritus of the ARS by his long time friend Mr. Whit Wells. It is classified as a white rose but actually that only occurs in the greenhouse when the shade cloth is used. This miniflora rose will range from a pink blend to a red blend depending on the time of the year in the garden. It has exceptional form, fantastic color and very good substance. The rose will win queen of show and work well in miniflora collection classes especially those involving 9 or 10 roses. It will shine in the garden as the coloration of the rose stands out. Disease resistance with a regular spray program is very good. The rose will also benefit from less fertilization than normal for best exhibition results. It responds similarly to how ‘Lady E’owyn’ benefits from being fed only once a bloom cycle. Less is better for this rose.
