Heady citrus fragranced blooms in clustered abundant masses make this rose the award winner it is. Introduced in 1979, ‘White Lightnin’ was an All American Rose Selection in 1981. It features double, large, 30 ruffled-petal flowers in pure clear white on long stems suitable for cutting.
White Lightnin’ is a grandiflora rose with a vigorous, bushy habit and stems lined with sharp woody thorns. It has shiny, large, leathery, deep green leaves. It blooms from early summer through frost with good care and maintenance. Flowering may occur earlier in southern zones.
Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. They grow best in places with slightly dry climates, because such climates disfavor the fungal diseases that plague them. For this reason, it is important to maintain good airflow within and between planted roses through good planting and pruning practices, which will dissuade fungal attacks. Roses are rife with pest and disease problems. Fortunately, cultivars like White Lightnin are bred to be disease resistant.
Grandiflora roses are a garden must. They are perfect for sunny foundations, mixed borders and cutting gardens. Especially pretty, floriferous cultivars like this one.
