I have three "white" rose plants and I love them all. White roses stand out so beautifully- the blooms are highly visible from a distance - and they look great even under moonlight. There is something delicate and enticing about them that is different from other colors of roses to me. They are quite difficult to photograph with my cheap digital camera because they capture too much light and are overly bright under normal lighting conditions.

These are three of the very best white roses for Louisiana. To this list I might only add the popular polyantha, Marie Pavie. Marie Pavie is a smaller shrub with fragrant blooms on a plant with few thorns. I don't currently have one of these, but it's on my wish list!
