White roses are among the origins of the breeding roses, as we know them today. The white Damascus roses and the famous Rosa alba (alba = white) bear filled white flowers. Together with various wild roses they form the basis for today's breeding repertoire. Even the ancient Romans took pleasure in the delicate beauty of the Alba Rose. The Damask rose comes from Asia Minor and has been part of European garden history since the 13th century.
