Green Ice, bred by Ralph Moore, California 1971.
This is a pretty little rose with a very nice, bushy branching habit. I grow mine as part of a garden border, and it works very well for that purpose.
This is supposed to be a green rose, but in all but semi-shady spots, it is pure gleaming white. If it is not exposed to the hot sun of mid-day and afternoon, it will bloom in a cool, pale green hue as you see it here. As long as you don't expect it to be a deep green color, you won't be disappointed. Actual size of blooms is about 1" across.
'Green Ice' is also very disease resistant in my experience.
