'Silver Moon' Large-flowered climber / rambler. Van Fleet, U.S. 1910. Yellow buds open to large, single to semi-double, creamy white blooms set off by golden stamens. "The climber to choose if you want to slipcover a barn with roses," says Peter Malins. Too much rose for Lyndhurst's trellises, but good healthy strong canes, handsome foliage favored by nesting birds. Profuse one-time bloom. A species hybrid which grows 25 to 30 feet.
