White roses look really great when blended with roses of other colors. You can select different white garden roses for your garden as they come in a number of varieties.

White Meidiland

This white garden rose is easiest to grow as it is highly resistant to pest attacks and diseases. It grows beautifully on slopes and that’s why it proves to be an excellent ground cover. Its specialty is its four inch wide blooms that appear throughout the year. These qualities of white meidiland make it beloved flower of gardeners.

Winchester Cathedral has been named after a cathedral in UK. It is majestic flower that produces blooms early in its season and constantly produce blooms. These flowers have a pale color in their center and grow on medium sized shrub. This beautiful shrub is four feet wide and is four feet in height.

This is my favorite flower too as it has sweet fragrance. It produces white flowers with light pink color on edges. It is also a disease-resistant flower that grows to a height of four feet. Its blooming season starts from the end of summer and continues to fall.

Being a highly fragrant flower, it is the most care-free rose in rose family as it is a strong plant and needs little pruning. Moreover it is also resistant to common diseases. As far as its blooming period is concerned, I would like to inform you that it produces plenty of blooms in June and continues and blooms off and on until fall.
