Very fragrant roses, that are good for cutting have always been high on my priority list. Especially a good white rose! In many Danish gardens I noticed a low climber, with gorgeous creamy white hybrid tea rose shaped flowers. They had a very powerful fragrance and were very great for cutting lasting 5 days in vase, scenting the rooms with it's delicate perfume. I found out the rose's name was White Nights or s. 'Amorique', s. 'Chateau Angelus'. Confusing that the same rose have all these names for marketing purposes in different parts of the world. I do not find that Poulsen Roses have been very good at promoting their roses. Especially not since they picture this rose as light yellow on their website.
Most grew it as low stiff upright climber against walls and fences and it seemed to be able to reach a height of about 7 feet. Perfect - since most of the flowers were in nose-height! Over the years it has become one of my favorite roses. The first year it looked like a small pathetic hybrid tea rose. The second year it was 3 feet tall - I began to doubt that it would ever become a climber, maybe it did not do well in my garden? The third year it shot 3 huge basals - that reached 7 feet and I began to be pleased with it --- especially the wonderful scent and how great the creamy white roses were for cutting. The fourth year and this year, it is a spectacular rose! Like most large flowered climbers, it has a stiff upright growth habit and only needs a little support. I estimate that this single plant produces at least 400 nice cut roses each year, even though the stems are not very long and the flowers sometimes comes in clusters - sometimes a single stem makes a bouquet.
The buds are light yellow and the flowers have lower petal count, than most hybrid tea roses. As the flowers develop, they are sometimes creamy white and sometimes have pink hues on the inner petals.
Fully open they fade to a pure white. I highly recommend this rose. It is one of my favorite roses, though very modern in appearance, with the reddish new growth and glossy leaves.
