I think I am in love with this 'different' pink. Not baby pink but a more sophisticated ???
Often she has a packed quartered center - those pictures didn't turn out. Here she is in November looking more ordinary.

Introduced in France by Selection Meilland in 2001 as 'Andre le Notre'.
Introduced in United States by Star Roses (Pennsylvania) in 2004 as 'Betty White'.

Betty White is very nice iris_gal!
What's that blue/voilet flower off in the background?

RE: Betty White (1 pic)

Oh! I love it! And I read on HMF that she is fragrant. True?
I think I am in too cold a climate, though. (sigh).
Beautiful photo. Thx for posting!

I really need to get her. She really is lovely!

RE: Betty White (1 pic)

I had her last year - she died (in the garage) in my great bags over the roses in pots with still green leaves on them and no watering over winter fungus fiasco. I loved that rose.

Yours looks lovely!! Sigh, I wish I still had her.

Looks like a very beautiful rose! I didn't know Betty White before you posted about her and always like to be introduced to new varieties. Thanks for showing this rose here!

Off to HMF to find out more about her...


RE: Betty White (1 pic)

Thank you for the nice comments. I do believe she will be my 2nd favorite after Evelyn. And great fragrance.

Jim ~ the purple spire is Linaria, purpurea I think. It's the perrenial one and this is a new seedling! Thrilled to have it. Moved the camera on purpose to include it.
