Yes, that's right! :) haha. I have to get the images together but I'm wondering if it's Mrs. Herbert Stevens!

Thanks Krista-both are beauties!
Kate, it's close but I don't think so.

Here's another link with lots more images:

hi, Susan,
So the apricot colored roses in the above pic, are they something else or just a cream colored phase or just the way the lighting is on your mystery rose? Is it a climber? I'm guessing not since Mrs. Herbert Stevens isn't, but the new pix do seem like it might be. It's beautiful, whatever it is!

harborrose, I did have Reve d'Or planted just nearby so that must be it. I don't remember it being that apricot color on the outside at all-a touch on the inside maybe but not on the outside. Thanks :)

Susan--nice to see your name--- I think of you often and wonder how your garden is doing since you moved---I remember how beautiful your garden was in your other home
This rose is gorgeous.

Hi Susan I thought of Ilse Kron Superior right off which can nod be very white or have that ivory cream quality.
For some reason I thought you had it at your last house!

Yes, I did have it at my last house and have been dreaming about it since! I didn't take it with me. I don't know, Joe, if you look closer at the link above, I'm not sure it's the right form, but maybe worth a try if the Mrs. Herbert Stevens bloom isn't right when I finally see one (it's planted).

Hi Florence! I hope you're well and your garden is blooming! I'm here over 3 years now and this year was, of course, the best year for our new roses. We don't have that many, but it's still a nice collection.

Just saw this pic and it reminded me of Frau Karl Druschki. One of my favorite white roses.

I would say it's not 'Mrs. Herbert Stevens', as the flowers on mine (I have the climbing form) nod considerably; also this flower gives me the inpression of having thicker petal substance. I would also rule out 'Mme. Jules Bouche', though I can't say exactly why: the plant and flowers just don't look right.

Leaves too modern for Frau Karl Druschki.

It looks a lot like John F. Kennedy, an HT.
