Dove Rose * Davis Austin Rose * Introduced in 1989

This loose floppy rose fades from a pale apricot to white. The loosely arranged petals of the Dove Rose lend a casual air. They are lightly fragrant. Dove will get to be 3-4 feet tall. It is susceptible to black spot. Dove should not be planted in a humid area. Full sun is a necessity for good health of the Dove rose.

The Dove Rose is the result of a cross between 'Wife of Bath' and a Seedling.
