The Honor rose has been called the most beautiful white rose available! Look into whether it will work for your garden.
I've seen several dates for the release on this one. 1976, 1978, or even 1980. We do know that it was originally bred by Warriner. You may also see this rose sold as the JAColite, Silver Medal, Michele Torr, or Honour.
Some gardeners have said that this is the best white hybrid tea rose in the world. They make some great arguments. This rose grows nearly straight up with stems 2-3 feet in length, perfect for a vase. There are few extra buds on the sides so it looks great as a cut flower. It also has a mild and sweet scentand will bloom throughout the season.
However, this flower tends to do well under warmer conditions. Its rated from zone 5 and up but think strongly about getting winter protection for it. In addition to that, it is a little weak against blackspot and some other fungus so it needs dry climates as well to do best, as well as some preventative care. The stems also have a good amount of thorns.
