Patience is a delightful buttermilk rose with ruffled petals reminiscent of fine lace. The creamy yellow buds gradually open out fully to form flat, medium-sized rosettes. The many frilled petals are beautifully arranged around a classic button eye. There are approximately 165 small petals packed into each bloom. There is a fresh old rose fragrance with elements of fruit, lilac and myrrh. The fragrance is medium-strong at first, but softens as the blooms age, later developing lemony notes. The romantic colour helps to make Patience a highly desirable wedding flower. Depending on how they are styled, these versatile, creamy white blooms can bring a traditional old-world character to floral designs. In more contemporary interpretations, 'Patience' has a natural radiance, freshness and charm. Patience is one of the seven heavenly virtues.
