Default White Swan

Bought on impulse a cheap rose bush from Wilkinsons, claiming to be a floribunda called White Swan. However, I can't find any reference to such a rose on the internet, except for one reference to a Hybrid Tea called White Swan (on an American site). Any help anyone?

I just checked it in the rose magazine and found it, the rose which is fully white and has no other colour mixed.

Where are you from? The rose, as you name it, was developed in the
Netherlands, by this company. If you are in Europe, you might want to
try to contact them:

Thanks everyone for the info - which confirms what the one internet reference says. What puzzles me is that I bought it on a UK high-street non-specialist general store (Wilkinsons), so expected it to be a common rose. Instead, it's hardly mentioned anywhere and the one reference there is says it's a hybrid tea and not a floribunda. I just wonder whether it really is White Swan or whether it's actually something else and has been incorrectly packaged. Time will tell! It seems to have settled into the ground quite happily. Probably find out it's not even white . . .

My White Swan is at best around 30 inches, I'd guess slightly shorter than that. My Becky Shastas are just about the height of 36 to 42 inches that you mentioned in your posting. Both were planted over a half dozen years ago.

Both flowers are in the same bed, with the Becky further back and White Swan nearer the front, primarily because of the drier conditions at the back (up a slight rise and nearer the house wall, rather than for any height/planting reasons of mine.

The shastas flow in and out and around the shrubs at the back and show up well against the green shrubs. The Shastas seem to prefer (and spread into) the slightly drier conditions at the back, although the bed is fairly dry overall(for my garden) built on exceptionally heavy compacted clay, since the bed is at the very top of my small hill.

BTW the two plants do not flower at the same time, the WS Ech finishes just as the Becky Shastas start. The Shastas bloom at the same time as a large stand of Jacob Cline Monarda, which is a good 4 feet tall and wide. The shastas, although shorter, sort of surround the monardas and the effect is very pleasing

Default Chinensis rose

best bet is find a book on rose care, and talk to the people at your
local garden shop. Care will often depend on local growing
conditions. Here in NC (USA), I prune in Jan/Feb when the leaves are
gone and before the spring growth starts. Black spot, mildew, and
japanese beetles are the main problems, and so I only buy roses, such
as the Knockout line, that can handle the problems.

Early and economical-to-grow, Swan varieties can be flowered in Spring from an Autumn sowing when grown in a cool greenhouse (night temperatures lower than 60F/15C) with no special vernalization treatment required. Multi-stemmed plants that are well-matched for uniform size, exceptional garden performance, and abundant large blooms in vibrant colours make this the true garden aquilegia. Easy to force into flower in containers. Very high bud count for more flowers per plant. An excellent home garden cut flower that is taller than the Songbird varieties.
