White flowering roses
White roses are some of the oldest rose bushes available, somewhat synonymous with old English roses. White roses are perfect for adding a touch of simple elegance to the garden with their purity making them a popular choice amongst novice and experienced gardeners alike. White flowers make a great backdrop for other colours flowers or adding a restful, soothing atmosphere on warm summer days, especially when set off with a backdrop of lush green foliage. There are very few pure white roses - the large majority that we would class as "white" as in fact creamy white flushed with subtle tints of pink or apricot. However, the overall effect when grown en masse, especially from a distance, is of pure white. We've hand-picked the best white flowering roses below based on healthy growth, disease resistance and beautiful flowers.
